  • Content: Two brief notes written on what appears to be a scrap from a small notebook. The note at the top of the scrap furnished an image that Whitman used in "Full-Starr'd Nights," first published in Specimen Days & Collect (1882–83) and reprinted in Complete Prose Works (1892). The other note refers to an article titled "A Study of Carlyle," published in the April 1881 issue (vol. 39, pp. 494–609) of Contemporary Review and signed "The Author of 'The Moral Influence of George Eliot.'" The article thus referred to had appeared in the February 1881 issue (vol. 39, pp. 173–185), with the signature "One who Knew Her."
