      **Capote Memoir to Be Sold
      A manuscript written by Truman Capote on Aug. 24, 1984, the day before
      he died, is to be sold at auction on Nov. 9 at Bonhams & Butterfields in
      Manhattan, The Associated Press reported. The manuscript is among more
      than 300 of Mr. Capote's personal effects to be offered for sale by
      Joanne Carson, the second wife of Johnny Carson. Using a spiral
      notebook, the ailing Mr. Capote wrote the 14-page memoir after asking
      Ms. Carson what she wanted for her birthday. "Truman," she said, "I just
      want you to write. If you're writing, I'm happy." The result was
      "Remembering Willa Cather," a recollection of his first chance meeting
      with Miss Cather when he was a teenager. The memoir, with an estimated
      sale price of $20,000 to $30,000, appears in the November issue of
      Vanity Fair. Other items in the auction include the tuxedo Mr. Capote
      wore to his famous Black and White Ball, his passport and a signed
      Richard Avedon portrait.

      **Arrests Over Notebook Of Hank Williams
      The disappearance of a 59-year-old notebook belonging to the country
      music legend Hank Williams, containing unpublished song lyrics and other
      writings and valued by experts at as much as $250,000, has led to the
      arrest of two people by the Nashville police, The Associated Press
      reported. Stephen M. Shutts, the co-owner of a traveling music
      memorabilia collection, and Francine Boykin, a former worker on a
      cleaning crew at Sony/ATV Music Publishing, turned themselves in on
      felony theft charges and were released on bond. Mr. Shutts, 42, told The
      Tennessean that he had legally bought the notebook for an undisclosed
      amount. The police said the notebook had not been recovered.
