""Revel III" was undoubtedly "Graphic's" best daughter, judging her as a bench show performer. She was out of an early litter by "Graphic", and her dam was "Champion Beryl", a daughter of "Champion Bang II" and "Pearl", a litter sister to "Price's Bang". "Revel" was strictly field trial bred, but she was given little opportunity in this direction. On the bench, however, she was a consistent winner both in England and in America, winning in the heavyweight classes wherever shown. She was bred by E.C. Norrish and was whelped February 2, 1883."

""Graphic" was whelped April 15, 1881, consequently he was just past four years of age when he came to this country to head the Graphic Kennels. He was not shown on the bench until the following year, when he made his American debut at Pittsburgh under the late Major J.M. Taylor. He won in his class, but when it came to the special for the best pointer in the show he,
"Robert Le Diable" and
"Revel III" met. The decision went to "Robert Le Diable", although press reports seemed to be unanimous that both "Revel III" and "Graphic" were better than the son of
"Croxteth" and should have gone over him. A few weeks later, at Newark, under John Davidson, "Graphic" and
"Beaufort" met for the first time, when the latter was given the blue, which decision was generally conceded to be correct, but "Revel III" was awarded the special for best of the breed. At New York, J.M. Tracy followed Major Taylor's lead and placed "Robert Le Diable" over "Graphic", but once more there was a protest from the press. His show career continued through many years and few dogs ever made a better record than him."
