An early reference to Rose Wilson is in connection with her appearance in a production of La Vie Parisienne at the Bijou Theatre, New York, on 17 March 1884.

‘The most shapely woman on the American stage to-day is, beyond doubt, Rose Wilson, who played in Kiralfy Brothers’ spectacular pieces of last season. She is as near perfect as it is possible for any one to be. Her hands, it is true, are possibly a little too heavy, but there was postiviely not another blemish about her.’
(Salt Lake Evening Democrat, Salt Lake City, Utah, Thursday, 10 September 1885, p. 3c)
