Sitting by the window of her convent, Sister Anne opened a letter from home and found a $10 bill inside. As she read the letter, she caught sight of a shabbily dressed stranger outside leaning against a lamppost below.

Quickly she wrote, “don’t despair, Sister Anne,” on a piece of paper, wrapped the $10 in it and dropped it out the window. The stranger picked it up and, with a puzzled expression and a tip of his hat, walked down the street.

The next day Sister Anne was told there was a man at the door insisting on seeing her. She went down and found the stranger waiting there. Without a word, he handed her a roll of bills.

“What’s this?”

“That’s the $60 you have coming. Don’t Despair paid 5 to 1 on the fourth race at the track yesterday.”
