Contact info updated on Poem in Periodicals index page

The contact information at the bottom of the Poems in Periodicals page has been updated, to reflect that Kevin McMullen, not Susan Belasco and Elizabeth Lorang, is now overseeing that section of the Archive.

Images added to several pieces of correspondence

We received images from Bolton Central Library (Bolton, England) of several pieces of Whitman's correspondence. We had previously had transcriptions of the letters live on the Archive site, with the text derived from Edwin Haviland Miller's Correspondence volumes. We have now added images of the letters to the transcriptions, checking the text against the images. The metadata has been updated accordingly. The letters were bol.00001, bol.00002, and bol.00003. A letter from a private collector was also missing an image, which we have now received and linked to (prc.00112).
