Scope and Content

Traubel again urges Wallace to return to America with [R.M.] Bucke, stressing the need to visit soon in case anything should happen to Whitman, whose condition at present, however, is stable; he also refers to Bucke, who is still away on his visit to England and staying with [Harry Buxton] Forman [English Whitmanite and bibliographer]; and to [Daniel] Longaker [Whitman's doctor], who believes they should take Whitman's own statements about his condition with a pinch of salt.
