€œI want to repay you, said the nobleman. €œYou saved my son`s life.

€œNo, I can`t accept payment for what I did, the Scottish farmer replied, waving off the offer.At that moment, the farmer`s own son came to the door of the family hovel.

€œIs that your son? the nobleman asked.

€œYes, the farmer replied €œI`ll make you a deal. Let me take him and give him a good Education. If the lad is anything like his father, he`ll grow to a man you can beproud of.
