Houghton replied to Whitman's letter from New York on 27 September, apologising that he had only been in Philadelphia for a brief visit. The two men met two months later.

Memoranda during the War was 1,000 copies according to manuscript notations by Whitman recorded by Meyerson in his bibliography; of these, 750 were bound by James Arnold of Philadelphia and 100 copies (all first issue) were bound in Two Rivulets with other works (Meyerson A 9.1.a). The second issue (Meyerson A8.1.a2) had the additional "Remembrance copy" page and two portrait engravings. The present copy, whether one removed from Two Rivulets or one of a number of known unbound copies, is probably one given by Whitman himself to Lord Houghton during the latter's visit to America around the time of publication, subsequently rebound with his gold wheatsheaf stamp on the upper cover.
