  • 1. Since, according to Whitman's Commonplace Book, the poet sent two volumes on March 4, 1880, to R. H. Ewart, of New York City, it is probable that this note accompanied the volumes (Charles E. Feinberg Collection of the Papers of Walt Whitman, 1839–1919, Library of Congress, Washington, D.C.). The price was always $10. [back]
