A Glass of Milk – Paid In Full

One day, a poor boy who was selling goods
from door to door to pay his way through
school, found he had only one thin dime left, and
he was hungry. He decided he would ask for a
meal at the next house. However, he lost his
nerve when a lovely young woman opened the
door. Instead of a meal he asked for a drink of
water. She thought he looked hungry so brought
him a large glass of milk. He drank it slowly, and
then asked, “How much do I owe you?” “You
don’t owe me anything,” she replied. “Mother has
taught us never to accept pay for a kindness.” He
said, “Then I thank you from my heart.”
As Howard Kelly left that house, he not only felt
stronger physically, but his faith in God and man
was strong also. He had been ready to give up
and quit.
Year’s later that young woman became critically
ill. The local doctors were baffled. They finally
sent her to the big city, where they called in
specialists to study her rare disease. Dr. Howard
Kelly was called in for the consultation. When he
heard the name of the town she came from, a
strange light filled his eyes. Immediately he rose
and went down the hall of the hospital to her
room. Dressed in his doctor’s gown he went in
to see her. He recognized her at once. He went
back to the consultation room determined to do
his best to save her life. From that day he gave
special attention to the case.
After a long struggle, the battle was won. Dr.
Kelly requested the business office to pass the
final bill to him for approval. He looked at it, then
wrote something on the edge and the bill was
sent to her room. She feared to open it, for she
was sure it would take the rest of her life to pay
for it all. Finally she looked, and something caught
her attention on the side of the bill. She began to
read the following words:

“Paid in full with one glass of milk”
Signed, Dr. Howard Kelly.
