Town’s People’s Bargain

The townspeople asked, “How do you live so well?”

The man answered, “If a salesman trades twelve bushels for 2-times his gold, boasting to all, of his great profit, and collects nothing until the following season, will he not then starve before he reaps his return?” The townspeople listened with content as the man continued, “But if one can pedal all twelve bushels for 1-time his gold, collecting immediately, boasting not, will he not become rich and hawk double next season. All who buy will know of such a good bargain, and quality; and return to the vendor offering to buy more of his goods”.
