Tom Walker and his wife don't get along well. His wife is very greedy, and they both are poor. They disagree on things often. Tom decides to go walk around because he is bored.
Thanks for getting rid of my wife
Tom found a skull and when he touched it, a man appeared and told him not to touch it, he said that deacon peabody was going to die soon and he made a deal with Tom that Tom would become a Usurer and open a brokers shop
When Tom got home he tells his wife about the money. She wants him to take the deal but Tom doesn't want to so he says no.
Tom is greatful that the devil got rid of his wife and he becomes an usurer
