  • Content: A lot of the language of this scrap is taken from page 1238 of Harper's Statistical Gazetteer (1855). In 1883, Whitman was asked to compose a poem for the 333rd anniversary of the founding of Santa Fe, NM. He responded with a letter that was published in the Philadelphia Press August 5, 1883. It was reprinted in the section of November Boughs (1888), entitled "The Spanish Element in Our Nationality."
