Finding a message in a bottle has happened many times previously... but the last line of this report made me ponder about life.
1913 message in a bottle foundOk..its nothing significant - just one of those moods this Monday, I suppose.
The pencil-written note was dated March 30, 1913, and signed by Emmett Presnell of Rockford, Wash. It asked the finder of the bottle to write him back. The newspaper noted that Presnell died at age 85, on May 13, 1978.
