TRUST BEGENTS TRUST


CHARLES James Fox was a representative of the middle class in the House of Commons in England. He was a great orator. He had made it a point to pay his creditors as soon as he received his salary on the first of every month. Once a tradesman asked him for payment against a promissory note on the first of the month, as he had to deposit the money in the bank. Fox replied, I am sorry I cant pay you this month as I have to repay a loan to Sheridan. He has loaned me money without taking a promissory note from me, because he trusts me implicitly. Supposing I die suddenly, the poor man would get nothing.]

The tradesman was highly impressed by Faxs high sense of integrity. Tearing the promissory note in bits he said, I dont need this either; you may return the loan at your convenience.

Fox was deeply moved. Holding out the money he said to his creditor, In that case I must pay you before I pay to Sheridan. In the first place your loan is older: secondly, you need to put it in the bank urgently; thirdly, Youve torn up the promissory note, trusting me. Ill pay Sheridan next month; hell understand.

Trust begets trust.
