To the editor:
About two weeks ago, I wrote a letter in which I
indicated that due to rushing into things after my wife passed away
and not thinking clearly, I had neglected to clean out a jewelry
cabinet that I put up for auction.
I asked that the person that bought the cabinet please return the
items that were in the cabinet. To make it easier for them, I gave
my email address, my telephone number and my street address.
I never heard a word from anyone, which made me believe one of two
things. Either they didnít read my letter, or they are naturally
dishonest. In this situation, I believe the latter to be true since
they have had at least eight months to return these items to the
auctioneer, or to at least try to find the original owner.
[to top of second column in this letter]
I guess the outcome of this whole situation is as everyone says,
take you time doing things after a major event, as in my case, the
loss of a spouse. If you donít, there will be someone waiting to
take advantage of you.
John W. Hart
