"Solomon Hermann von Mosenthal, a German dramatist, in 1849, published a play entitled 'Deborah.' Augustin Daly's adaptation of this was produced at the Howard Athenaeum, December 8, 1862, under the title 'Leah, the Forsaken.' It is questionable whether 'The Patriot Highwayman' was written by Daly. It has been listed as by 'Latham C. Carleton,' that is, Edward S. Ellis."--Johannsen, A.
