Minor corrections to LG 1881–1882, LG 1891–1892, and Duke finding aid

Kelley Franklin pointed out that in the 1881–1882 edition of Leaves of Grass the section 4 heading of "The Wound Dresser" was repeated and the phrase "many the days and nights" in the poem "On the Beach at Night" had been mistranscribed as "many the days and night." On checking, I discovered that this second error occurred also in our transcription of the 1891–1892 edition. Franklin also noted that in the record for duk.00034 in the Duke finding aid the word "Resurrection" had been misspelled in the title "Poem of Wonder at The Resurrection of The Wheat." I have corrected these various errors in the relevant files.
