On recto of sheet 6.25" x 7.75" is MS of "Broadway, 1861" in ink with several revisions; on verso of sheet (written the other direction) is a much corrected MS in ink of "I Too Am Drawn," and a pencilled draft--also much-corrected--of "[I Have Lived]". Mounted with these MSS are the posthumously printed forms of the first two poems as well as the 1855 Samuel Hollyer portrait of Whitman, signed by the artist.
