Anonymous Patron writes The Desert-Mountain Times Reports Adam Muhlig of Marathon is a book collector. He also has a good business evaluating and cataloging the literary archives of contemporary writers. Work comes to him mostly by word of mouth.

Muhlig handled the details of providing a “provenanceâ€? – the authenticity and background of the letter – and he soon had it sold for more than $5,000.”
