A user alerted us, via email, of an error in Whitman's Complete Prose Works. A the top of page 34, our transcription had read "day more, and so on for many days, the rate of 1000 a day. Quite often they arrive at" whereas the original text reads, "day more, and so on for many days. Quite often they arrive at the rate of 1000 a day." We have corrected the error, and thank the user for alerting us to its presence.

Ed Folsom alerted me to the fact that our transcription of this poem printed in a periodical (https://whitmanarchive.org/published/periodical/poems/per.00077) had "long-strech'd" for "long-stretch'd." I have made the correction.
