Published transcription of Whitman's periodical poem "The House of Friends"

A transcription of Whitman's 1850 poem "The House of Friends" has been added to the Archive's "Poems First Published in Periodicals" section. The poem had been listed as having first appeared in a periodical, but the Archive had been unable to obtain an image of the issue of the New York Daily Tribune in which it appeared, thus no image or transcription was available. We have now obtained a digital image of a microfilm copy of the issue, allowing us to transcribe and annotate the poem. A link to the transcription has also been added to the index of individual periodical poems, as well as the index that appears on the page dedicated to the New York Daily Tribune.
