Joseph sez, "Here's a letter I (and others on the JREF mailing list) got from James Randi concerning a letter Doug Henning wrote to him which Randi states was stolen and is currently for sale on eBay:"
Item #6535581498 now being offered for sale on eBay is a letter written
and sent to me by Doug Henning in 1983. At that time, I lived in
Rumson, New Jersey. Until I saw it on eBay a few days ago, I thought it
was still in my Henning file, but it apparently was stolen from me

If any of you have heard scuttlebutt about this item, I'd like to hear
from you. I cannot discover who offered it for sale, but I assure you I
treasured it highly.
