I don't think there is anything public.

The 1984 Stata User's Guide had the following main entries:

	#delimit
	#review
      append
      beep
	by:
      capture
	confirm
	convert [Professional version]
	correlate
	count
	describe
	dir
	discard [eliminated information from regress]
	display
	do
	drop
	erase
	exit
	expand
	format
	generate
	help
	... if
	... in
	infile
	input
	label
	list
	macro
	merge
	modify
	more
	outfile
	plot [typewriter graphics]
	query
	regress
	rename
	replace
	run
	save
	set
	sort
	spool [log]
	summarize
	tabulate
	test
	type
	use

Evidently, it covered most of the useful statistics one really needs,
and was small enough that all but the very lazy could learn
it all, and never have puzzles about what syntax to use.
Thus if this were to be reissued as Stata Classic in 2004,
it would be massively popular...
