The Conspiracy of Neamathla

So far I have (thanks to Dale Cox) found two versions of this story.  One was written by Washington Irving and was published in a collection called
Wolfert's Roost and Other Papers Now First Collected.  Irving was a friend and correspondent of Florida's first civil Governor, William DuVal.  DuVal's granddaughter, Mrs. T. P. O'Connor, also wrote a rather more detailed and somewhat different account in her memoir entitled My Beloved South.  Both versions can be read in their entirety:
