corrections made to letter from A. Van Rensellaer to Walt Whitman, 30 July 1865
Originally our text for this letter was derived from Horace Traubel's With Walt Whitman in Camden. After examining a photostat copy of the original manuscript in the special collections department at the University of Chicago, I made roughly a dozen small changes, mostly in punctuation, though I also added one word that had been dropped, and added emphasis in two places where underlining had been used by Van Rensellaer.
