A Beautiful Story From "The Power-Of-Kindness"
The year was 1863, on a spring day in Northern Pennsylvania. A poor boy
was selling goods door-to-door to pay his way through school. He
realized he had only a dime left, and that he was hungry. So he decided
he would ask for a meal at the next house. However, he lost his nerve
when a lovely young woman opened the door.
Instead of a meal, he asked for a drink of water. She thought he looked
hungry and so she brought him a large glass of milk. He drank it slowly,
and then asked, "How much do I owe you?"
"You don't owe me anything," she replied. "Mother has taught us never to
accept pay for a kindness." He said, "Then I thank you from my heart."
As Howard Kelly left that house, he not only felt stronger physically,
but his faith in God and man was strengthened also. He had been ready to
give up and quit.
Years later, that young woman became critically ill. The local doctors
were baffled. They finally sent her to the big city, where they called
in specialists to study her rare disease.
Dr. Howard Kelly was called in for the consultation. When he heard the
name of the town she came from, he went down the hall of the hospital to
her room. Dressed in his doctor's gown, he went in to see her. He
recognized her at once. He went back to the consultation room determined
to do his best to save her life. From that day, he gave special
attention to the case.
After a long struggle, the battle was won. Dr. Kelly requested from the
business office to pass the final billing to him for approval. He looked
at it, then wrote something on the edge, and the bill was sent to her
room. She feared to open it, for she was sure it would take the rest of
her life to pay for it all. Finally, she looked, and something caught
her attention on the side of the bill. She read these words:
"PAID IN FULL WITH ONE GLASS OF MILK..."
Dr. Howard Kelly*
*Dr. Howard Kelly was a distinguished physician who, in 1895, founded
the Johns Hopkins Division of Gynecologic Oncology at Johns Hopkins
University. According to Dr. Kelly's biographer, Audrey Davis, the
doctor was on a walking trip through Northern Pennsylvania one spring
day when he stopped by a farm house for a drink of water.
This beautiful story about Dr. Howard Kelly is one of many true stories found in “The Power-of-Kindness.”
