Photo 15 Feb 82 notes Last Bill and Testament
This is Oscar Wilde’s last bill from the Hôtel d’Alsace in Saint-Germain-des-Prés, Paris. Wilde spent his last days there (in Room 16), famously remarking “I am dying beyond my means” and “I am fighting a duel to the death with this wallpaper. Either it goes or I do”. Alas, it was the wallpaper that survived.
