Walt Whitman - To a Historian.

YOU who celebrate bygones! 
Who have explored the outward, the surfaces of the races—the life that has
	exhibited itself; 
Who have treated of man as the creature of politics, aggregates, rulers and
I, habitan of the Alleghanies, treating of him as he is in himself, in his own
Pressing the pulse of the life that has seldom exhibited itself, (the great
	pride of man in himself;)
Chanter of Personality, outlining what is yet to be, 
I project the history of the future.
