A William Faulkner letter that was purchased over the Internet last
month for $1,200 by a Portland collector turned out to have been
stolen from Southeast Missouri State University. The dealer selling the letters said he acquired them from a
grocery clerk who said he inherited them from his grandmother\'s
estate, police said.
