"During 1885, Mr. James L. Anthony of New York startled the kennel world by importing the famed English champion " Graphic", and a valuable brood bitch, "Nell of Efford", from Mr. Norrish's kennels in Devonshire. -- James Watson, "The Dog Book", 1906; reprinted in Pointer Points, vol.4-91

""Nell of Efford", which came over with "Graphic" in May, 1885, was purchased solely as a brood bitch and at the time of her importation was past six years old. In England she had already produced several winners, but she lived only two years in this country, during which time she did little to help the Graphic Kennels. Unlike all the others in the kennels, she was a lemon and white. Her sire was "Don Juan", by "Random", the son of "Brockton's Bounce", and her dam was "Rew's Kate", by "Peamore Wagg", a son of old "Champion Wagg". As far as blood lines are concerned she was an excellent cross with the "Graphic" blood." -- A. F. Hochwalt, 1923, The Modern Pointer
