Letter

Scope and Content

Refers to a recent visit from a reporter who had heard (wrongly) that Traubel was to print a posthumous volume of Whitman's poems, and expresses his general distrust of reporters. He wonders if the Bolton group would be interested in any of Whitman's books, which are to be sold; refers to some comments on Leaves of Grass by Mrs [Edith Havelock] Ellis in a publication (Seed Time) sent to him by Wallace; and mentions friends of his living in or visiting Britain.
