Photograph of the drawing of the head that

D.G. Rossetti did from WM. J. Stillman,

Signed D.G.R., and dated 1879.

Received at Rockford in January, 1901.

“1 Feb., 1901.

Deepdene, Frimley Green.

“It was William who sent you a photo of the head

Rossetti did from him, he thought you might like to have

it as Rossetti considered it one of his best drawings.

The head in Miss Cary's book (Study for Dante) was done

from the model Alesandro. D.G.R. made a study from William

and said unless he would cut his beard off he could not use

the head. I did not consent to this, so the professional

was called in.” Marie Stillman
