Morris's firm completed its work in the chapel at Jesus College, Cambridge, in 1872-78, with 12 spectacular stained-glass windows. They were designed largely by Burne-Jones. This was the last commission Bodley gave to Morris. With other firms, as Bodley remarked to the college's bursar, 'I find I get my own way more than I can with Morris'.
