This version of the story differs slightly from the pamphlet written by Elizabeth Pinckney Huger and published in Charleston around 1881 under the title Statement of the Attempted Rescue of General Lafayette from “Olmutz” and may represent an earlier draft copy. The end paper on the front cover of the volume bears the signature of C[leland] K[inloch] Huger.
