NEW YORK (February 6, 2013)—A long overdue copy of the biography of a 16th-century priest titled "Fire of Francis Xavier" that was checked out on April 10, 1958 from the Fort Washington branch of the New York Public Library in upper Manhattan, has finally been returned.
Library manager Jennifer Zarr said the book arrived at the library on Monday wrapped in a plain brown envelope accompanied by a check for $100 to cover the late fee.
She said library records don't go back to 1958 and there's no way to trace who borrowed the book.
She wouldn’t reveal the name on the check.
