Correction to letter from Palin H. Sims to Walt Whitman, 17 March 1885

User Sue Ramsey, an expert on this family, notified us that the name of Palin's brother, "Sam," had been mistranscribed as "Lane" (and that our gloss about the possible indentity of Lane was also therefore unnecessary). I have corrected the transcription and altered the notes accordingly.
