Ethical Imperative

Dear Short Answers:
About 6 months ago my wife and I moved into a new house.  Since then, we have found little things like a gold bracelet and an earring and things like that that the previous owners clearly did not mean to leave behind.  A couple of weeks ago we found $200 in the corner of a closet.  My wife says that we should call the previous owners and give everything back.  I disagree.  We have found problems with the house that they never told us about and the bracelet and the $200 don’t come close to paying for that.  What do you think?

Dear F&K:
Undisclosed issues with the house are irrelevant.  That’s what inspections are for. Give back the stuff!!
