There are three drafts of this story:
One early shorter untitled draft, then a draft in final form that is told in the 3rd person, then another draft in final form that is told in the 1st person.
The 3rd party draft was prepared a couple years before the 1st person version. The 1st person version is the one sent to Otis Adelbert Kline (OAK), who proceeded to mark it up with changes to try to make it a Dennis Dorgan story. OAK then sold the story to THE MAGIC CARPET MAGAZINE and it was announced in the last issue (January 1934). 
THE MAGIC CARPET MAGAZINE then went under and it was never published.  OAK listed the story in his records as “Sailor Costigan and the Jade Monkey.”

The final typescript sold on eBay in 2000 for around $1500.
In the first publication, Glenn Lord decided to keep the OAK changes, likely to try to have more Dorgan stories to make a book with.
Glenn also listed the author as “Patrick Ervin”, the pseudonym that REH used with some of his Dennis Dorgan stories

REH sent Otis Adelbert Kline a finished typescript entitled "Sailor Costigan and the Yellow Cobra." This typescript was first corrected, and then later changed into the Dennis Dorgan story "Sailor Dorgan and the Yellow Cobra" by Patrick Ervin. It was sold to MAGIC CARPET MAGAZINE, but never published by them. The typescript at the Cross Plains Library is Howard's, but correction tape has been used to change Howard to Ervin, Costigan to Dorgan, Mike to Spike, The Sea Girl to The Python, etc.) Still later, a "clean copy" was produced that incorporated all the changes and corrections.

There is also an original Costigan typescript, titled "The Fangs of the Yellow Cobra."
"A Korean Night" is a slightly different, earlier original draft of the Costigan version.

Alternate title: untitled story ("I'm a man of few words . . .")

The title "Shackled Mitts" was erroneously applied to this untitled story, as Glenn Lord thought it was a story
 of that title mentioned in REH's papers, which REH said he had offered to Fiction House in April, 1931;
but as this story was not written until after early 1932, this cannot be that story.
