(CBS/AP) PORTALES, N.M. - Apparently feeling guilty about a prank years ago, a graduate of Eastern New Mexico University has managed to wipe the slate clean - by sending the school 80 rolls of toilet paper to replace what he stole from a dormitory.

Eastern New Mexico University says it received the yuletide gift box this week along with a Christmas card and written apology. 

The anonymous writer apologized for stealing toilet paper years ago and said a new dedication to Christian faith led to the deed.

"Jesus Christ has made such a difference in my life and has prompted me to repay for any sins..."

The box contained five packages, each containing 16 rolls of two-ply, septic-safe toilet tissue.

One, therefore, assumes his confession is more than paper-thin.

University officials say "all is forgiven."  The toilet paper is being donated to a nearby charity because it doesn't fit the school's dispensers.
