A tailor was travelling about the world in search of work
He met a Jew on the
"Give me thy money, or I will strike thee dead."
"Grant me my life, I have no money but eight farthings."
"Money thou hast; and it shall be produced," and he used violence and beat him.
The Jew's dying last words were, "The bright sun will bring it to light."
Many years later the tailor was drinking coffee with his wife.
The sun shone in his drink and the reflection gleamed about the room. The tailor said, "Yes, I would like very much to bring it to light, and cannot!"
"What dost thou mean by that?" asked his wife. He answered, "I will tell thee, but you must never tell another."
He told her how he had killed a Jew years ago while seeking work.
Before two days were over, the whole town knew it, and the tailor was brought to trial, and condemned. After all, the bright sun did bring it to light.
