  • Content: A manuscript about "corruption," "putridity," and "maggots" growing out of the "too richly manured manured earth," with no known relation to any of Whitman's published works. Edward Grier posits that this manuscript was written in the 1840s or early 1850s ( Notebooks and Unpublished Prose Manuscripts [New York: New York University Press, 1984], 1:156). The manuscript is pasted down, making the verso inaccessible.
