Henderson, Alice H.
Henderson, Donald Gene
Carl Maria von Weber : a guide to research
New York: Garland, 1990, 385 p.

This is what Donald Gene Henderson had to say:

Uncovers a previously ignored biography of Weber's boyhood friend Ferdinand von Lutzendorff, which claims that Weber and Lutzendorff were so distressed when they found that they would be separated by Weber's move from Munich to Freiberg in 1799 that they attempted a joint suicide by drowning. They were rescued before either was injured. Their friendship resumed in 1813-4 when both were in Prague. Lutzendorff painted a miniature of Weber which was the basis of the well-known etching by Juegel.
