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].
