Kelly Franklin alerted us to the fact that the Walt Whitman Encyclopedia entry for the 1860 edition of Leaves of Grass listed the number of poems in the "Leaves of Grass" cluster as 21, when it should be 24. I have corrected the entry.~ Nikki

Ken located an entry in Horace Traubel's With Walt Whitman in Camden where Whitman discusses his letter to Longfellow of February 20, 1881, requesting an autograph. I have added an excerpt from this discussion to the annotation for the letter.~ Nikki

I have added 92 new letters from the Reconstruction and post-Reconstruction periods. The letters are available on the Whitman Archive at http://www.whitmanarchive.org/biography/correspondence/index.html.

Two letters from Whitman to William Michael Rossetti (of September 1 and 10, 1876) mentioned a letter from Whitman to Dowden in the annotations. The date for this letter to Dowden was incorrectly listed in the annotations as January 20, 1872. I have corrected the date for the Dowden letter to January 18, 1872 in both cases.~ Nikki
