Minor corrections made in two encyclopedia entries and one manuscript transcription

Stefan Schöberlein pointed out that the entry for the New Orleans Crescent ( was missing a space between words and had perpetuated from the print edition a misspelling of the last name of Durant DaPonte as "Da Poute." Our transcription of med.00725, which was based on the works of Grier and Holloway, included this same misspelling. Finally, the entry for New Orleans, Louisiana had referred to "Fremont House" instead of the correct "Tremont House." I have now corrected each of these errors.
