Now we enter strange realms. Spiritualism was big at this time. Ruskin went to seances and at one claimed to see his dead love Rose. But so did Rossetti and Jane and at first William (who got bored). I can't find a picture of her but they went several times to see the famous Mrs Guppy

but I haven't got Rossetti's notes. Perhaps he just enjoyed taking Jane.

The photograph features medium Florence Cook in trance being looked over by a spirit c.1874]
