Model description:
"19' lwl Peg, Sonder class sloop of 1910. Model by L. Francis Herreshoff." (Source: Bray, Maynard. 2004.)

"In looking over [#695s] Peg's construction plan and her offset book, I see no indication of LFH's involvement. I suspect that, with some general guidance from NGH (maybe the usual sketch-type layout of plan, profile, and midsection), LFH was assigned the task of carving and fairing the model [no 325] in the hope that he'd take up yacht designing. ... [#707s] Pollywog's construction plan was at least partly drawn by LFH as the notes in the lower right are clearly in his hand. Her offset book, however, is in NGH's hand. ... I'd say these were considered NGH designs, not LFH ones..." (Source: Bray, Maynard. Private email communication to Claas van der Linde, April 22, 2009.)
