Mrs Forbes was very old and very poor. Everybody in the neighborhood called her Granny Forbes and tried to help her. Some neighbors came in each day and cooked meals for her. Others came and cleaned her room. There was little furniture in her room. It was small, dark and almost empty. There was a bed and a table, and there were two chairs. In winter, neighbors sometimes brought coal and lit a fire, but Granny’s room was often very cold. Granny lived in poverty all her life. She died at the age of eighty-four. Then her neighbors got a big surprise. She left £ 50,000!
