Message in a Bottle

The Spokesman-Review has a story on some people finding a glass bottle after 86 years since being cast into a creek. It had “an old-fashioned cork stopper.” The bottle contained a surprisingly well-preserved letter written in pencil and dated March 30, 1913. I came across the article reprinted in The Seattle Times. With a little leg work, the letter writer’s nephew was found and talked about his uncle, who died in 1978. The reporter ended the story with a nice touch: “Emmett, we finally found your bottle.”
