Two errors corrected in Traubel

I have corrected two errors (noted by Ed Folsom) in Horace Traubel's With Walt Whitman in Camden. In the entry for January 5, 1889, the letter "y" was missing from the word "by" in the phrase "sit down by the fire." And in the entry for September 7, 1889, the word "contended" was misspelled in the final paragraph. Both errors have been corrected.

Fixed typo in piece of journalism

I have corrected a typo in a footnote for a piece of journalism. In the second footnote of Whitman's March 28, 1842, column in the New York Aurora, "What's the Row?" Martin Van Buren's name was misspelled "Marin." I have corrected the error.
