Scope and Content

Refers to: their inability to prevent R[ichard] Worthington from publishing a volume of selections from an old pirated book [the third edition of Leaves of Grass] on which the copyright was not renewed; Whitman's copyrights, which he was deceived into thinking were all in good shape, although this particular instance was missed; Traubel's interest in the future of the spiritual Whitman rather than the money to be made from his work.
