"In 1922 Ernest Scott sold to Bob Maloney of Pittsburg, U.S.A., a pointer bitch, "Ch. Lansdowne Prairie Queen". She became the foundation of the famous Herewithem Kennel and won the supreme award at Madison Square Garden's Championship Show (the Crufts of America). After the last war, to show something of his gratitude Bob Maloney gave Ernest Scott a pointer dog by the name of "Herewithem Royal Flush". Ernest soon won C.C.s and qualified him in the field to make him a champion. In one litter sired by Flush, Ernest picked out a bitch puppy which was eventually sold to 'Bill' Parkinson of Garstang. This bitch eventually became supreme champion at Crufts -- it was "Ch. Chiming Bells"." -- Edmondson and Robertshaw, 1978, The Pointer: Faber and Faber, London
