corrections made to Whitman Encyclopedia entry "Richard Maurice Bucke"

I fixed the spelling of "Buck" to "Bucke" in four places; replaced "Doyal" with "Doyle"; changed "Rip Tom" to "Rip Torn"; and altered "Specimen of Days" to "Specimen Days." Other minor spelling changes were made: "lead" to "led"; "literal" to "literally"; "net" to "next"; and "executer" to "executor."

Corrections to letter from Fred Vaughan to Walt Whitman of 27 March 1860

Ed Folsom spotted a number of typos and other errors in the transcription and notes for this letter (loc.00569). Upon further investigation, I discovered that we had gotten images of the original, so I proofread the transcription against the images, corrected the notes, and added links to the images.
