In 1727, there lived a man named Tom Walker and his wife. They were very poor and lived a few miles from Boston, Massachusetts. They were very miserly and never got along.
Now I just need to find the property...
One day Tom Walker decided to take a different way home. He went through a swamp and discovered an Indian skull. After kicking it, the Devil appeared. He offered Tom treasure for a price, but he declined.
I shall charge four percent!!
Tom went home and decided to share his secret about the Devil. He knew that she would be intrigued by it. His wife urged him to make the deal, but he was not going to please her. She decided to make the deal on her own and went in search of the Devil.
She won't be able to pay...perfect
Tom's wife hadn't returned for a few days, so he decided to go look for her. He went back to the Indian Fort and saw an apron hanging from a tree. He thought that maybe his property was in there! No! it was only a heart and liver. Tom felt gratitude towards the Devil and decided to seek further acquaintance with him.
Tom went in search of the Devil to make a deal with him. Tom refused to become a slave dealer. The Devil agreed to make the deal if Tom sold his soul to him and became an usurer. The broker's shop would be set up in Boston next month.
Tom became a very wealthy man by taking everything that someone had to offer. He lent money to many and they couldn't pay it back, yet people kept coming.
Deal...if you can't pay it back I get your house!
