1 volume, 20 x 12.5 cm.
The transcripts, originally made by Clara Barrus and Elizabeth Burroughs Kelley, should be viewed as a map to the original. Due to the difficulty of interpreting handwriting, complete accuracy of the transcripts cannot be ensured.
In this brief journal, Burroughs describes a summer visit with Walt Whitman. He also reminisces about his first experiences away from home.
