Correction to Interview of 3 March 1880

Ken pointed out that Whitman's annotation of this interview at the Library of Congress has the author as "Pennypacker" rather than "Pennybacker," as Giantvalley and White have it. Some research confirmed Whitman's spelling, so I've changed the attribution.

Fiction introduction, bibliography updated

I have updated the bibliography of reprints of Whitman’s fiction to reflect the discovery (by Stephanie Blalock) of 17 new reprints.  I have also updated the citation style and fixed a broken link in the introduction to Franklin Evans and “Fortunes of a Country Boy.”

Original of Thomas Proctor Reminiscence Added

I've replaced the contents of med.00627 in the Interviews and Reminiscences section. Until now, this had transcribed the short excerpt printed in the Brooklyn Eagle of 2 April 1898; it now transcribes the original, 11-page reminiscence from The Journal of Hygiene and Herald of Health (February 1898).

I have published "Lesson of the Two Symbols" in the Poems in Periodicals section of the Archive:
http://whitmanarchive.org/published/periodical/periodical_titles/per.00186

In addition to adding this new page, I updated the headnote about the Subterranean to include a link to the poem as well as to insert a missing quotation mark in the intro paragraph, following "spirit."

Thanks go to Wendy Katz for finding and sharing the image of the Subterranean that allowed us to complete his work.
