Corrected typo in Traubel, vol. 2

An entry in Traubel’s With Walt Whitman in Camden, vol. 2, from Monday, August 13, 1888, had a typo in the following sentence: "Do you remember, the Magazine man said he would like to be infromed whether the page pleased me?” I have corrected the typo (to “informed”).

Updated review attribution

I have updated the author information and added an explanatory note for a review of the 1881 edition of Leaves of Grass. The review (unsigned) was published in The Sunday Herald on October 30, 1881, and was written by Walt Whitman and Sylvester Baxter.

Sun-Down Papers published

On July 11, 2016, we published a new journalism series, "Sun-Down Papers." The series was originally published in 10 numbers from February 1840 to July 1841. An introduction to the series, written by Jason Stacy, was also published, and is accessible here.

Corrected typo on the Journalism index page

Brett pointed out that the title of the Hempstead Inquirer had been misspelt in the index listing for the "Sun-Down Papers" (it was incorrectly spelled "Hemstead"). The typo has been corrected.
