Scope and Content

Traubel quotes from a letter he has received from [British author and reformer Henry S.] Salt in which he refers to a book, Songs of Freedom which is soon to be published and for which he has previously asked permission to use quotes from Whitman. Traubel also refers to a letter he has received from [Sidney] Morse, in which Morse expresses his desire to start a paper and put in a word about the "damnable" things that are going on, and comments that he is writing something on the "Homestead business".
