One day a lawyer’s wife fell ill. The lawyer went to get a doctor. The doctor knew that the lawyer was famous for not paying bills (账单). So he said to the lawyer before he entered the house, “If I do cure your wife, I am afraid you may not pay me.”
“Sir,” replied the lawyer, “here is $500. Whether you cure my wife or you kill her, I will give you all this.”
The doctor believed him and went into the house. When he reached the woman’s bedside, it soon became clear to him that he could do little. She was seriously ill and though he gave her some medicine, she soon died.
He told the lawyer he was very sorry, and asked for the money which he had been promised.
