author's name added to review

While working on annotations for the Reconstruction-era correspondence, Zachary King at the University of Iowa noticed that Edwin Haviland Miller identifies the author of a review of Drum-Taps, published in the Commonwealth of 24 February 1866, as Franklin Benjamin Sanborn. The review was presented on the Whitman Archive as by "[Anonymous]." I checked the bibliography of criticism and noted that Sanborn is acknowledged elsewhere as the author of the review (including in Giantvalley and in Lee Gougeon's 1992 article in WWQR), so I updated the author information in the TEI file and on the index page of reviews of Drum-Taps.
