72Whitman's journals / search
- Jun 13, 2008I remember as a teenager reading Whitman's journals and a
discription of a place he called the "Summers farm". He wrote that
to get out of the city for needed recooperation he would
occationally visit (friends?) the farm and enjoyed some time with
nature which restored his spirits, etc.
Is anyone familiar with this writing in the journals, and is there
any hope of finding the location of the Summers farm ? As a teenager
I fantasized that it was somewhere near where I grew up in
Burlington County near the Rancocas River possibly Morestown area
about eight miles from Camden.
The discription he gave in his journals was so much like the area
and I hoped that if it was, then possibly I knew the place.
Perhaps I'm still fantasizing, but for years the curiosity lingers.
