Jane's last meeting with Rossetti

Sitting on a wall Jane told Blunt that though her love for Rossetti had ended in 1875, she met the year before he died in 1881. She was to spend the afternoon with him at his home in Chelsea, and dined with him, and after dinner almost convinced him to come to the house to see the girls when he turned (away). I had half crossed the small yard - "I was very excited that day," she said, "but never saw him again."
