Hasty correction to the second verse which a poor, starving copy-clerk miscopied, for which he suffered a month on a diet of goose-quill shavings and thickened copy-book ink.

From men and dogs and ghosts

as anyone can naturally see from the scansion, should read:

From women, men and dogs and ghosts

The work will now conform with the original notes from Garibaldi's field collection efforts.

With due apologies,
