Editorial note: This manuscript has no known relation to Whitman's published work. The leaf originally was part of a larger notebook, "The regular old followers," that probably dates to between 1853 and 1855.

Related items: The cancelled lines on the back of this manuscript leaf were used in the 1855 edition of Leaves of Grass. The leaf originally formed part of a larger notebook. We have made composite images that show the continuation of the text on this leaf with text on the notebook leaf from which it was cut, and the manuscripts have been transcribed in separate files. See loc.05705 and loc.00024.
