From AIS Bulletin #185 April 1967 Introducing SHORT STORY ML. 30". Rococo X WHOLE CLOTH. This has been a "small tall" in California and a "big border" in Oregon. Take your pick-either way it is thoroughly charming. A sib to DIPLOMACY, this was the latest and smallest of the cross. Standards are pale blue; falls are violet. Thereis an almost-white area near the beard, which is blue tipped yellow. Ruffled, with flared round falls and closed standards. Three or four branches plus terminal. HC 1966. $20.00. Keith Keppel.
