Save Money On Flights

The Boys' Uncle Thought It A Great Hardship To Have To Give Up The Place The Boys' Father Had Improved, For He Was A Thrifty Man, Had Some Money, And Was Able To Improve.

When the five years' rent was counted out on the table, Mr. King said to the boys' uncle, "That

Is the money coming to the boys, count it." He counted it and said, "This is five years' rent certainly." "Now," said Mr. King, "there is a bad house upon the farm; it is not in as good repair as I would like and I would like a good house upon it. I will take L100 of this money and with it I will build a house upon the place." He took L100 of the five years' rent and built a house that was never inhabited. The children never got this money back. This case was referred to again and again in public meetings and other places till Mr. King was obliged to make an effort to explain it away. The children's uncle was rich, and they thought that, therefore, the orphans need not get all the money. Mr. Brown knew this case intimately, as the drowned man, his widow, and orphans were members of his congregation. This is liberty of contract.

The argument that the children had relatives comparatively rich was the same argument as Captain Dopping used as a reason for not restoring what was robbed from the Buchanan children - their relatives were rich and therefore they did not need it.
