|4 O Money, could you spare me a dime? Just enough for a phone call and a hot lunch?
CHAPTER 341 aI slept in the doorway of a church last night; the bsexton shooed me away.
2 I crept away on frozen feet, and there was another who came with me.
3 The cman who came away from the church with me is sick, and he has no shoes at all.
4 dHe is delirious with fever, and he does not know where he is.
5 He moans and cries out in terror; he dreams that he is back in the etrenches, awaiting the morning death.
6 He calls out for his wife, but she does not hear. How did he come to be so cast down and alone?
7 He needs to eat something hot. He needs a blanket.
8 fI returned to the church to explain his need, but the doors were locked and bolted.
CHAPTER 351 O Money, my gfriend is dying. He shivers and shivers, but there is no fire.
2 My shoes do not fit him, and his feet are cold and hard.
3 My coat does not warm him, and his heartbeat is growing faint.
4 hHe cannot last much longer than this. He needs food and warmth and medicine.
5 iO Money, have you heard news of my child? jI thought maybe you had.
6 kO Money, give us a break. Give us a break.
||CHAPTER 361 lO God, can you lend us a dollar? I swear that I will pay ten times as much into the poor box when I am back on my feet.
2 O God, would it help if I apologized for the things I have said about you? mI take back what I said about how rich you are, and nI never had anything against your son personally.
3 O God, my ofriend is dying. Help us.
4 pPlease, God, please.
CHAPTER 371 O Money, I always knew you would come through for me. qI never doubted it even for a moment.
2 When rmy friend awakened this morning he was better, and he spoke to me as a friend, knowing that I had cared for him.
3 s"Never will I forget this act of kindness," he said. "And I shall in turn help you in your hour of need."
4 And truly, he is no poor tbeggar like myself, but a man of business uwho was set upon by competitors, and robbed, and left for dead from a blow to the head.
5 vYes, O Money, he is one of your own followers, and he knows you well because of all the spirits he has sold in speakeasies.
6 Surely, this is your doing, O Money. I would recognize your special golden hand anywhere.
7 O Praise be to you, O Money. I have been given a fabulous new life.
