Updated date on post-Reconstruction letter

We had listed the date for a letter from James R. Osgood to Walt Whitman as December 31, 1881.  The letter is actually dated December 13, 1881.  I have made the change.

Warning about Chrome Added to Audio Page

There's a problem with the way Apache/Cocoon delivers mp3 files that makes them not load in Chrome. While we work on a permanent fix, I put up a warning for Chrome users to either use another browser or download.

Changed date of post-Reconstruction letter

Ken pointed out that a letter from Amelia W. Bates to Walt Whitman dated January 18, 1880, referred to a E. C. Stedman article that appeared in the November 1880 issue of Scribner's Monthly, suggesting that Bates misdated this letter in the first month of the new year.  I have corrected the date to January 18, [1881].
