Excerpt from Reminiscences of Walt Whitman: With Extracts From His Letters and Remarks on His Writings

I had intended to add to this volume an extensive bibliography of Leaves of Grass that I have prepared, forming a curious anecdotal and literary history of the book and its "varying fortune, with flight, advance and retreat, victory deferr'd and wavering," up to the point of Whitman's death and his work's triumphant success. It was the intention also to include a copy of his will, a group of unclassifiable anecdotes and items, and a full list of changes of titles of poems, for the benefit of holders of old editions. But it is thought best to reserve all this matter for a small supplementary volume. I also made, ten years ago, a pretty full concordance to Leaves of Grass, but the MS., together with portrait and autograph Mss. of Walt Whitman's, and the first cast of much of the present volume, was stolen from me in Europe, after receiving the benefit of suggestions from John Addington Symonds and other English friends.

Mr. Symonds was singularly unfortunate in his published utterances on the man he loved most passionately of any on earth. We here in America were astounded that it seemed to him necessary in his work on Walt Whitman to relieve the Calamus poems of the vilest of all possible interpretations. It was a sad revelation to us of the state of European morals, that even the ethical perfume of these noblest utterances on friendship could not save them from such a fate. But Symonds had the best of motives.
