Corrections made to piece of correspondence

Ken noticed several errors in the notes for the letter from Walt Whitman to James Redpath, 21 October 1863. The name of the character in Louisa May Alcott's Hospital Sketches, Tribulation Periwinkle, was misspelled. Also, the note incorrectly referred to Specimen Days as the realization of Whitman's publishing proposal to Redpath, when it should have been Memoranda During the War. Both of these errors have been corrected.
