He sent a copy of one of his published lectures to Rossetti, who by that time had become a virtual recluse. A frequent correspondence followed and they eventually met in September 1880 when Caine visited Rossetti in his home at Chelsea, The following year Caine left his employment in Liverpool and went to live with Rossetti and stayed there until Rossetti's death in April 1882.
