  • Content: Edward Grier tentatively dates the handwriting of this manuscript to the 1850s ( Notebooks and Unpublished Prose Manuscripts [New York: New York University Press, 1984], 1:16). The notes are similar to many of Whitman's other jottings about family in the 1850s and 1860s. At the repository this manuscript is bound with three other manuscript leaves and two newspaper clippings, also about members of Whitman's family. It is not clear whether Whitman or a collector bound the items, which are on different sizes and types of paper and appear to have been written at different times.
