Don't Dispair

	A nun was sitting at a window in her convent one day... when she
	was handed a letter from home. Upon opening it a $10 bill dropped
	out. She was most pleased at receiving the gift from her home
	folks, but as she read the letter her attention was distracted by
	the actions of a shabbily dressed stranger who was leaning
	against a post in front of the convent.

	She couldn't get him off her mind and, thinking that he might be
	in financial difficulties, she took the $10 bill and wrapped it
	in a piece of paper, on which she had written, "Don't despair,
	Sister Eulalia," and threw it out of the window to him.  He picked
	it up, read it, looked at her with a puzzled expression, tipped
	his hat and went off down the street.

	The next day she was in her cell saying her beads when she was
	told that some man was at her door who insisted on seeing her.
	She went down and found the shabbily dressed stranger waiting for
	her.  Without saying a word he handed her a roll of bills.  When
	she asked what they were for he replied, "That's the sixty bucks
	you have coming.  Don't Despair paid 5-1."
