We have published a newly discovered review of Whitman's poem "After All, Not to Create Only." The review appeared in the San Francisco Daily Evening Bulletin on November 11, 1871. Whitman had first published the poem concurrently in the New York Commercial Advertiser and the New York Evening Post on September 7, 1871; the poem was then published in a stand-alone volume by Roberts Brothers in Boston in late 1871. It is this bound volume that is being reviewed by the Bulletin.

Jason Stacy pointed out two errors in annotations for the "Letters from a Traveling Bachelor" journalistic series. In note 8 for the installment of 4 November 1849, Charles S. Watrous was incorrectly identified as "Charles S. Waltrous." And in note 7 for the installment of 25 November 1849, the Dutch artist Ary Schefler was incorrectly identified as "Ary Scheffer." Both errors have been corrected.

We have updated the Archive versions of Horace Traubel's With Walt Whitman in Camden (9 vols.) to the most recent (P5) version of TEI. In the course of this update, we made various adjustments to eliminate extra space in the display and we added date ranges to the table of contents. We have also corrected some typos.
