Additional Information From the Colton Storm catalogue: "This is Harrison's account of his escape from the Goliad Massacre, his recapture by the Mexicans, and his confinement and treatment in unspecified mines of Mexico.

He then wandered about in Mexico until he stumbled onto Colonel Doniphan's men on their way from California to join General Taylor near Buena Vista."
