When she died she bequeathed her supply of the Taduki leaves to him; Quatermain's addiction to opium was perhaps the result of his supply of the leaves being exhausted and his inability to get more. She was informed about Allan's death by George Curtis Sir Henry Curtis's brother.

In 1889 Allan returned to England to seek Lady Ragnall and her supply of the drug.
