The stolen bust of Edgar Allan Poe has been found at the Raven Inn in Richmond, Va.--in an appropriately mysterious fashion. An unidentified man carried the bust into the bar about midnight Tuesday and ordered a mixed drink for himself and a beer for the bust. He scribbled Poe's poem "Spirits of the Dead" on a paper bag and left before police--who had received an anonymous tip--arrived. Dr. Bruce English, president of the Poe Foundation, had said earlier in the day that Halloween pranksters may have been responsible for the weekend theft and that if the bust was returned safely, no questions would be asked.
