It was probably the biggest day that Channing Bank and Trust Company would ever have - the morning the money arrived, by armored truck. Eight million dollars in small bills, enough to fill four large suitcases. The money belonged to Mrs Hartley Loring, the eccentric widow of the recently deceased, but long time very rich financier and ex governor. Yes, it was quite a day, and Mr Prouty the bank manager would never forget how it had all begun one week before.
