Subject Multiple "follows" attachments not working.

Content-Type: multipart/related;boundary="ABC010123456789"

content-type: application/json

   "_attachments" : {
      "boo.txt" : {
         "content_type" : "text/plain",
         "follows" : true,
         "length" : 21
      "far.txt" : {
         "content_type" : "text/plain",
         "follows" : true,
         "length" : 20
