Identified probable Burroughs note on correspondence

After review and comparison with other letters, we have identified John Burroughs as the probable writer of a note (a quote by Hartley Coleridge) on an envelope that accompanied the letter from Walt Whitman to John Burroughs of February 9, 1883.  We had previously listed the writer of this note as unknown. We have updated the information in a footnote:

Thanks to Nicola Healey for drawing our attention to this note.
