Bram Stoker Marries Florence Bolcomb

Wilde had been courting Balcomb, whom George de Maurier called, "One of the three most beautiful woman in England," for several years before Stoker, who knew Wilde from Trinity College, married her suddenly. Wilde would continue to write to her, sometimes anonymously. This event kicked off a (at first unreciprocated by Stoker) rivalry between the two men.
