Honesty is the best policy

Honesty is the best policy


There lived a poor but worthy farmer in a village.

With the small income of his few acres of land, he used to support himself , his wife and seven children.

One day while he was walking through the field, he was thinking of how he could add to his income.

Suddenly he found a purse of gold which was dropped by a passerby.

He carried it home and showed it to his wife . His wife advised him to use it or a part of this for themselves.

The honest farmer told his wife that honesty is the best policy and he tried to find out the person who lost it.

At last he found out the owner of the purse , a very wealthy man.

The rich man took the purse and gave him thanks, but no reward.

The wife rebuked her husband for his foolishness. The farmer kept saying “Honesty is the best policy.”
