Late library book

Bedlam Post.

Just a little late perhaps?

A library book borrowed from a Tulsa high school in 1947 has been sent back — with a $250 cheque to cover arrears.

Holland Hall School librarian, Betty Niver, claims the book, New Word Analysis: Or School Etymology of English Derivative Words was mailed to the school by Martha McCabe Jarrett.

Martha, of Venice, Fla., was a sophomore, when she borrowed the book 61 years ago at what was then Holland Hall School for Girls. Apparently, it came to light whilst she was cleaning out her home in Ohio.

Talk about honesty! How many other people would have done the same?
