Footnote edited in periodical poem

Ellie Tipton, the managing editor of Poet Lore, emailed the Archive, alerting us to a reprinting of Whitman's poem "When the Full-Grown Poet Came" on the cover of the 1891 issue of Poet Lore (Vol. III). We have edited the footnote to our transcription of the poem's original periodical printing, noting its reprinting in Poet Lore.

Minor corrections to Complete Prose Works

I spotted and corrected the following two minor errors in the transcription of Complete Prose Works: In the table of contents, elipses between "Steam-Power, Telegraphs, &c." and "America's Back-Bone"  were missing; near the top of p. 144 was an extraneous apostrophe after the word "ten."
