Revisions made to poetry manuscripts

I made the following changes to poetry manuscript transcription files:

bpl.00007 ("Eidolons"): I fixed the image links in the transcription file for bpl.00007; the links now point to the correct images.

bos.00003 ("Sail out for good for aye, O mystic yacht!"): There was a typo in the editorial note for this letter ("enveloped" should have been "envelope"). I've corrected it.

yal.00020 ("[Sands at Seventy]"): I fixed the image links in the transcription file for yal.00020; the links now point to the correct images.

hpl.00001 ("[Yet far sweeps your road]"): The text of this file was displaying outside of the gray Whitman Archive frame.  I have fixed the stylesheet so the manuscript displays properly.

Revision to note on "[I do not expect to see myself]"


Our note on the dating of this manuscript and our more general editorial note suggested two different dates for the manuscript (1850s and 1870s).  Believing the 1870s dating more likely to be correct, I removed the commentary about the 1850s.

Updated poetry manuscript images

Some images were incorrectly associated with poetry manuscripts, including "[Behold thy hunters]," "[the idea of the necessity of]," and others. I've confirmed that these poetry manuscript transcriptions match the associated images.
