1855 review tweaked

The Sept 15, 1855 review, "Leaves of Grass"—An Extraordinary Book," included this sentence:

"It is one of the strangest compounds of transcendentalism, bombast, philosophy, folly, wisdom, wit and dullness which it ever catered into the heart of man to conceive."

I assumed "catered" was a typo for "entered" and then verified that "entered" appears in the copy of the Brooklyn Daily Eagle online.
