Correspondence updates

I have published 111 new pieces of correspondence from the Reconstruction period on the Whitman Archive at

In addition, I have temporarily removed links to three letters, which did not resolve to a file for some reason. The affected WWA IDs are nyp.00199, prc.00002, and yal.00418.  I will address the issues with these as soon as possible.

Date corrected for "A Christmas Garland in Prose and Verse"

In our treatment of Whitman's published works in periodicals, we listed "A Christmas Garland in Prose and Verse" as appearing in the New York Daily Graphic on December 25, 1875. I've now corrected the date to December 25, 1874.
