Correction made to transcription of 1855 Leaves

Ed Folsom noticed that our transcription of the 1855 Leaves of Grass contained an discrepancy with the image of the page. Our transcription of page 56, three lines from the end, read "Failing to fetch me at first keep encouraged," but the image shows the text to read "Failing to fetch me me at first keep encouraged (the double "me" being a typo which appears in all known copies of the 1855 Leaves). I have added an extra "me" to our transcription to correspond with this typo. The change can be found here: http://whitmanarchive.org/published/LG/1855/whole.html
