Harsh Words.

A woman bought eggs and butter from a farmer who had a fine

reputation not only for the quanlity of his

products but also for his promptness of delivery.Then one day,

when she was expecting guests,he failed to

come.On the next delivery,she spoke harshly to him.He listened

to her agruments quitely and said

“I sorry if I caused you any inconvience,but I had the misfortune

of burying my mother yesterday.”

Ashamed the woman determined never to speak harshly to

anyone until she fully understood the

cause of the delay.
