Software for MS-DOS 1.25

I have dug out my Commodore 710 with the 8088 card and booted MS-DOS
1.25 on it. It contains a program named RECV.EXE, which allows receiving
files over the RS-232 connection. The program is not documented but
after some debugging it turns out that it uses some simplified version
of Intel HEX format to transfer the files.

Now, I would like to download some software and try running it to see
whether it works. But after browsing some software archives I can see
that most DOS software is available for later versions of MS-DOS. Is
there any place where I can find applications that would run under
MS-DOS 1.25?
