In the area where Tom Walker lives, there is an inlet that stretches way into the inland, which is border by towering cliffs and beautiful landscape. Tom was taking a short cut through the forest one day, which was rumored to have a hidden pirates treasure. He came to an old Indian fort, where the devil confronted him. The devil offered Tom the pirates treasure on conditions that Tom would do things that made him question them and would not talk about publicly.
Tom returns home, and not being able to hold such a big secret on himself, he told his wife. She was very excited to hear they would be wealthy, but Tom did not want to do what the devil was asking of him, and this angered his wife greatly. Determined to find the devil and make a deal for herself, his wife set out into the woods, never to be seen again.
Tom sets out through the woods to find his lost wife, and stumbles upon her old apron. She had taken the prized silver pots and every other article of value as an offering to the devil, and when Tom found her apron he was excited to get his valuables back. He lifted her apron from the ground, and instead of finding silver pots and pans he found a heart and a liver tied to it.
Tom meets with the devil once again to finalize their deal. The Devil agrees to give Tom the pirates treasure as long as Tom makes his own money from it. The Devil also wants Tom to use the money to start a slave ship. Eventually Tom and the Devil agreed that Tom would open a brokers shop and rip people out of their money.
Tom did exactly what the Devil asked of him. He opened a brokers shop and used it to scheme people out of their money. He used their money to buy whatever he wanted and make his life luxurious. The townspeople were very angry with him but he did not care. He knew there was another part of the deal that was yet to be fulfilled.
You won't get away with this!
Give me your money
One day Tom was about to foreclose a landjobbers land, which he had befriended and tricked into thinking they were friends. Tom says "The devil take me if I had made a farthing!" Just then there were three loud knocks at the door, followed by the Devil himself saying, "Tom, you're come for." And away they rode on the Devil's horseback, never to be seen again.
