typo corrected in "Democratic Vistas" in the Complete Prose (1892)

On page 203 of Whitman's "Democratic Vistas" in the Complete Prose (1892), the text erroneously had read, "America, filling the present with greatest deeds and problems, cheerfully accepting the past, including feudalism, (as, indeed, the present is but the legitimate birth of the past, including feudalism,) counts, as I reckon, for her justification and success, (for i who, as yet, dare claim success?)". The "(for i who)" ought to read "(for who)". I have made this minor correction to the xml/tei file ppp.00504. Thank you to Carlos Elisio Nascimento da Silva for bringing this error to our attention.
