60 Years Later, Book Returned

An "Ex-Toledoan" returned a library book 60 years after it was due. Napolean, a biography by Emil Ludwig, was checked-out six decades ago and returned recently with an anonymous letter of remorse, which said the book had been removed from the library in 1949 without being checked-out and that "Carrying guilt for 60 years is a terrible thing."
