"At the 1917 Westminster show, where I judged pointers and setters, he (Mr. E. B. Chase) showed, among others, a recent importation, a fine, big, upstanding dog called "Bob White Geltsdale Ronald". This dog, for a heavyweight, was one of the best I have seen in late years; in fact, he would compare favorably with some of the old winners, but in many respects he was superior to "Graphic", "Beaufort", "Lad of Bow", or "Tempest", for although he was a big dog, there was no useless lumber about him. I promptly put him to the front as the best pointer in the show, over "Mary Montrose", which took winners in bitches." -- Hochwalt, 1923
