I bought a dishmop-- having no daughter-- for they had twisted fine ribbons of shining copper about white twine and made a tousled head of it, fastened it upon a turned ash stick slender at the neck straight, tall-- when tied upright on the brass wallbracket to be a light for me and naked as a girl should seem to her father.
The New Yorker, July 10, 1965 P. 79 It is the custom of Mr. & Mrs. E.P. Taylor to invite more than a hundred racing folk to their National Stud Farm near Toronto the day after the Queen's Plate. The National Stud Farm can hold its own in charm as well as efficiency with the best show places in Kentucky. This year the writer was pleased to see Northern Dancer. Also Nearctic, Northern Dancer's sire; Victoria Park; New Providence, who won the Plate the day Queen Elizabeth II came to Woodbine, in 1959; and half a dozen others. Then came a procession of brood mares and new, leggy foals, which was headed by Natalma, with a filly at her side who is a full sister to Northern Dancer and to Arctic Dancer, the hundred-thousand-dollar yearling of 1964. Farther down the line was Canadiana, one of the writer's favorite racers, who won the Plate in 1953.
