Woolson dollars and "sense"

This story has been passed down through the years through the Woolson family. Ira Knight(6) Woolson tells a story about his father Elijah(5) Woolson one day going into Fort Covington, New York to get some money out of the bank. The bank made a mistake in giving him $10.00 too much. He went back into the bank and asked,"do you rectify mistakes?" upon which they replied "not after the money has left the bank". So he came away from the bank $10.00 richer!
You've got to love his honesty!!!!!!

There must be more great Woolson stories out there. Let's hear 'em.
