Scope and Content

Refers to: Wallace's advice to delay "the book" [possibly In Re Walt Whitman, the joint publication of Whitman's literary executors, ultimately published in 1893], with which he agrees; [John Addington] Symonds's A Chapter From my Life which he praises; a paper sent by Wallace containing a lecture by Thompson, which Traubel thinks is modelled upon [lecturer, Col. Robert Green] Ingersoll; Anne's health; a possible visit from [R.M.] Bucke; a report from Russia that Tolstoy read and admired Whitman; his 'Last Days' piece which is only a draft and should not as yet be printed by Wallace.
