transcription errors fixed in Nicholas D. Palmer letter

Archive user Michael Horne alerted us to errors in our transcription of Nicholas D. Palmer's letter to Walt Whitman of 24 June, 1865. In the letter opener, I corrected "near Lewis" to "near Louisville," and in the closer of the letter, I corrected "88th"  to "80th." I also fixed a transcription which had Palmer's misspelling "amediately" corrected to "immediately."
