Sitting by the window of her convent, Sister Barbara opened a letter from home one evening.Inside the letter was a $100 bill her parents had sent. Sister Barbara smiled at the gesture.As she read the letter by the window, she noticed a shabbily dressed stranger leaning against the lamp post below.Quickly, she wrote, "Don't despair. - Sister Barbara," on a piece of paper, wrapped the $100 bill in it, got the man's attention and tossed it out the window to him.The stranger picked it up, and with a puzzled expression and a tip of his hat, went off down the street.The next day, Sister Barbara was told that a man was at her door, insisting on seeing her. She went down, and found the stranger waiting. Without a word, he handed her a huge wad of $100 bills."What's this?" she asked."That's the $8,000 you have coming Sister," he replied."Don't Despair paid 80-to-1."
