Correction made to piece of Burroughs/Whitman correspondence

 A Whitman Archive user noticed an error in our transcription of 2 June 1873 letter from John Burroughs to Whitman. At the end of the letter's first paragraph we had indicated an unclear reading of a location on Long Island: "Yaphank on [Carmand?] Ruin" has now been corrected to "Yaphank on Carmans River." We would like to thank user Margaret Guardi for pointing out this correction.
