Correction made to piece of Burroughs/Whitman correspondence

 A Whitman Archive user noticed an error in our transcription of 2 June 1873 letter from John Burroughs to Whitman. At the end of the letter's first paragraph we had indicated an unclear reading of a location on Long Island: "Yaphank on [Carmand?] Ruin" has now been corrected to "Yaphank on Carmans River." We would like to thank user Margaret Guardi for pointing out this correction.

Two line-end hyphens added to transcription of 1881-1882 Leaves of Grass

Ed noticed that our transcription was lacking two hyphens that are present in the images for p. 61. I have supplied them.

Corrected link from photograph and revised information about photographers

Ed noticed that the page for "Walt Whitman by Frank P. Harned, ca. 1886 - ca. 1887" (zzz.00096) linked to an old version of our "Notes on Whitman's Photographers." He also provided updated information about the Edy Brothers, which I have incorporated into that page.

Corrections to 1881–82 Leaves of Grass transcription

 Ed noticed two errors in the transcription for the 1881–82 Leaves of Grass. On page 381, in the poem "So Long," I have corrected "noticeabsorbing" to "notice absorbing" and added a hyphen in the penultimate line on that same page (in the middle of the word "muscle").

New interview added

Rob Marland kindly alerted me to the existence of a heretofore uncollected Whitman interview in the Buffalo Express on 25 May 1890. I have finished transcribing, encoding, and proofreading, so I am publishing it to the interviews and reminiscences section.
