92 December 24 Academy
Defending Dante Gabriel Rossetti against inaccurate claims attributed to Scott.
Rossetti, William M. Untitled item. Academy (December 24, 1892): 304. Web. 21 Sept. 2011.
Rossetti says that while several claims attributed to W. Bell Scott and about him are inaccurate, he's inclined to say nothing in response. But the claims concerning Dante Gabriel Rossetti must be rebutted, he tells the editor of Academy.
The claims are in regard to Dante Rossetti's financial status, as well as an alleged isolation from friends, and William Michael Rossetti denies both claims and refutes them with personal recollections and observations to the contrary.
Despite claiming he felt no need to do so, Rossetti nonetheless refutes Scott's description of his state of mind in regard to his brother Dante nonetheless. Rossetti quotes from The Germ to support his assertions.
