The entries for this window in BJ's a/c book are dated December 1891: "Two designs for windows - of SS Stephen & Paul - in which, stripping my mind of all that is human & pleasureable in imagination, & investing it with the ill fitting & dusty rags of Protestant temper, I completed to my own memory a monument of self-abnegation. 150."
The entries for the window dated June 1892 name the glass painters as follows: Main lights by Bowman, tracery angels by Stokes, the wings drawn by Dearle.
