Don`t Despair....

I got sent this, by a friend..... 

 

Sitting by the window of her convent, Sister Barbara opened a letter from home one evening....
 
Inside the letter was a $100 bill her parents had sent. Sister Barbara smiled at the gesture.
 
 
As she read the letter by the window, she noticed a shabbily dressed stranger   leaning against the lamp post below.
 
Quickly, she wrote, "Don't despair. - Sister Barbara," on a piece of paper,   wrapped the $100 bill in it, got the man's attention, and tossed it out the window to him. The stranger picked it up, and with a puzzled expression and a tip of his hat,   went off down the street. The next day, Sister Barbara was told that a man was at her door,   insisting on seeing her.
 
 
She went down and found the stranger waiting.
 
Without a word, he handed her a huge wad of $100 bills.
 
 "What's this?" she asked.
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 "That's the $8,000 you have coming Sister," he replied. "Don't Despair paid 80-to-1."
