Two corrections

In the 1860 edition of Leaves of Grass, I corrected type in line three of "With Antecedents" to read "would not now be here" instead of "would not now be hero."

In the 1881-82 edition, in the line, "In each house is the ovum, it comes forth after a thousand years," I inserted a space between "comes" and "forth" (previously read "comesforth").

Both errors were pointed out by Archive users, Mario Corona and Robin Seguy, respectively.
