Tom requiredtime to think of them, and he was nota man to stick at trifles when moneywas involved. Tom reached home, hefound the black print of a finger burntinto his forehead, which nothing couldwipe it off

All these were under his command, and protectedby his power, so that none could find this treasurewithout doing him a favor.The devil controls the souls of those who are driven by wealth/ earthly girly.
