On the way through school, he found he had only one thin dime left and hewas very hungry. However, he lost his nerve when a lovely young woman opened the door.
Instead of a meal he asked for a drink of water. The woman thought he looked hungry, so brought him a large glass of milk.
He drank it slowly, and then asked, "How much do I owe you?"
"You don't owe me anything, my Mother has taught us, never to accept pay for a kindness."
He said....."Then I thank you from my heart."
Year's later that young woman became critically ill. The local doctors werebaffled. They finally sent her to the big city, where they called in specialists to study her rare disease.
Dr. Howard Kelly was called in for the consultation. When he heard the name of the town she came from, a strange light filled his eyes.
Immediately he rose and went down the hall of the hospital to her room. Dressed in his doctor's gown he went in to see her. He recognized her at once.
He went back to the consultation room determined to do his best to save her life.
From that day he gave special attention to the case. After a long struggle, the battle was won.
Dr. Kelly requested the business office to pass thefinal bill to him for approval. He looked at it,
Then wrote some-thing on the edge and the bill was sent to her room.
The woman feared opening it, for she was sure it would take the rest of her life to pay for it all. Finally she looked, and something caught her attention onthe side of the bill.
She read these words....."Paid in full with one glass of milk."
