Scope and Content

Refers to: the possible publication of the piece 'Last Days' in Once a Week, which will not affect Wallace's arrangement of the letters as formerly agreed ['Last days of Walt Whitman' consisted of a series of extracts from Traubel's letters to his friends in England and to Bucke in Canada, written during Whitman's last illness, and was published in In Re Walt Whitman in 1893]; the publication of the book [probably In Re Walt Whitman], which has been accepted by [David] McKay only on the understanding that the editors pledge enough copies to protect him from loss.
