"The Man That Corrupted Hadleyburg" by Mark Twain (1835–1910). Twain tells us his fictional town of Hadleyburg “was the most honest and upright town in all the region around it.” That reputation is challenged when a mysterious visitor arrives at the home of an “old cashier of the bank,” Richards, and leaves a sack of gold with a note. It says that years earlier the man was destitute and a local resident gave him twenty dollars to get back on his feet. The sack of gold is repayment for the kindness. Only thing is, his benefactor has to be found. It sets in motion a chain of events that demonstrates that Hadleyburg isn’t such a moral place after all!
