date error in Whitman biography fixed

An <em>Archive</em> user pointed out an error in a date in the biography. At the beginning of the section "New Orleans Sojourn," the first sentence read, "Fortunately, on February 9, 1846, Whitman met, between acts of a performance at the Broadway Theatre in New York, J. E. McClure, who intended to launch a New Orleans paper, the Crescent , with an associate, A. H. Hayes." I have revised the date to February 9, 1848. See "Walt Whitman," "New Orleans Sojourn."
