SO THAT'S WHERE THAT'S BEEN HIDING

Ray Williams writes: "It pays to clean off your bookshelves
occasionally!  I don't know if any of you have ever misplaced
any coins, paper money or books...  and have had them reappear
after you had given up on ever finding them.  That happened
to me over a year ago...  I thought I had misplaced a grouping
of colonial notes.  I figured they would show up sooner or
later.  After about six months I was starting to wonder if
they fell off the table (blame the cats) into recycling or
a garbage can.  Just a couple weeks ago I was looking for
several books for David Fanning, and in the process I found
a wooden box propped upright like a book.  It had my missing
notes and my Abel Buel spoon!  What joy I had at being reunited
with the missing items.  Has this happened to any E-Sylum readers?"

[Absolutely.  I've certainly had that experience, and I'm
sure many of our readers have, too.  And some of us have
discovered surprises tucked in books we've purchased - things
long forgotten by their owners and overlooked by the booksellers.
Anyone have tales to tell?  -Editor]
