A wallet and baseball glove have been returned to a Michigan man who misplaced them as a New Hampshire teenager 67 years ago.

Warren Houghton accidentally dropped the items between two layers of the wall at his one-room school house in Cornish, N.H.

The glove and wallet were discovered two weeks ago when renovations began on the building.

They arrived via a priority mail package Thursday in Michigan, where Houghton is now 81 and living in Kalamazoo County's Texas Township.

MLive.com says (http://bit.ly/MataHG) inside the wallet, Houghton found photos of his family, a boy scout ID and a letter from his sister.

Looking over the toughened baseball mitt, Houghton said to his wife, Betty: "Can you believe that?"
