Date corrected in Chronology

Mario Corona pointed out a dating problem in the Whitman Chronology.  Thus, I have changed 1836 to 1835 in this entry: "Works as a printer in New York but is unemployed after a great fire in printing district, 12 August 1835."

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”).
