“George Field, known to the craft as the disseminator of the American Beauty rose and now the orchid specialist of Washington, has a collection of cattleyas, vandas, dendrobiums and cypripediums that places him well up in the line of commercial orchid growers. […] A promising sport of La France, as yet unnamed, is now interesting Mr. Field. He considers it much superior to the original both in size of flowers and growth, and the best sport from La France that has yet been shown. The petals are a deep pink, especially so on the back, while the length of stem makes it in that particular a close rival of American Beauty. It has been suggested that it be named Belle of Washington,” American Florist, vol. 21, 1904, p. 908.

What makes it interesting is that E. Fischer's other rose, 'Elise von Schwichow', was offered through Hinner.
