Note: From Arthur C. Clarke's Preface to Reach for Tomorrow: "Rescue Party, which was written in 1945, was my first published story .... Readers of my earlier collection, Expedition to Earth, may just conceivably be interested in knowing that History Lesson and Rescue Party both stemmed from the same forgotten original, though now it would be difficult to find two more contrasting endings."
