Walt Whitman


1. On the basis of an entry in Whitman's Commonplace Book on March 17, 1881, it is a reasonable conjecture that Whitman sent the two volumes published in 1876 to T. W. Niemeyer, 150 Crown Street, New Haven, Connecticut—"for Sarah A Booth" (Charles E. Feinberg Collection of the Papers of Walt Whitman, 1839–1919, Library of Congress, Washington, D.C.). [back]
