    This postcard to Stedman has been dated on the basis of an entry in Whitman's Commonplace Book: "April 13 from E. C. Stedman | 80 Broadway N Y. | sent books, slips photo | &c | $30.00" (Charles E. Feinberg Collection of the Papers of Walt Whitman, 1839–1919, Library of Congress, Washington, D.C.).

    Whitman sent a letter to Stedman announcing the two volumes on April 12, 1876, and on May 5, 1876 he noted to John Swinton that Stedman had purchased books.
