Wilde, Whitman and Carpenter.

Oscar Wilde visited Walt Whitman in Philadelphia –
"finding the whole family
(a general custom in Philadelphia on those warm evenings)
sitting out on the doorsteps—Whitman in the midst,
in an armchair, his white beard and hair glistening
in the young moonlight, looking like some old god –
the others grouped around him or at his feet,"
as recounted by Edward Carpenter.
