Correspondence index page updated

 Kevin noticed that the introductory text on the correspondence index page (the text in the column on the right) was out of date. He has updated the language to reflect the latest work on Whitman's Late Life correspondence and the current options available on the index page.

Missing text restored to transcription of 1867 Leaves of Grass

Archive user Kenneth Sherwood pointed out that our transcription of p. 37 of the 1867 edition of Leaves lacked several words. As it happens, I recognize this as a long-standing problem that originally occurred c. 2000, when a Python programmer created a script to help us automate line-end tagging but that had the unintended side-effect of deleting any text that occurred between a mid-line hyphen and a line-end hyphen. Other occurrences were corrected at the time, but this one obviously got missed. The words have now been restored to the transcription.

Typos corrected in two critical essays

I noticed a superfluous comma in Alan Helms's essay "Whitman's 'Live Oak with Moss'"; in Hershel Parker's essay "The Real 'Live Oak, with Moss': Straight Talk about Whitman's 'Gay Manifesto'," I noticed that an "o" had been substituted for a "0"; in the same essay, Ken noticed that two words had been omitted. Appropriate corrections have been made.

  • https://whitmanarchive.org/manuscripts/marginalia/annotations/duk.00048.html
  • https://whitmanarchive.org/manuscripts/marginalia/annotations/duk.00197.html

    The images have been added.

Image link fixed for "Manly Health" installment

 Stephanie Blalock noticed that there was a duplicate page image in the final installment of "Manly Health and Training"; in the issue of December 26, 1858, page 3 of the New York Atlas appeared twice and there was no view of page 4. I have corrected the error.
