We had expanded to MissouriSikeston was our first store there. And we'd put stores in Neosho and West Plains. We'd gone toClare-more, OklahomaHelen's hometown. Our first seven or eight Wal-Marts were showingspectacular results. Once we got it going, it was hard to see why we should quit. The thing was, youcould see the potential so clearly. The profits and the sales were there but we needed to get betterorganized and come up with a more sensible way to finance the growth. I needed someone to help mewith systems and distribution. 鈥業 had better tell you all about it,鈥?she said. 鈥楢 poor woman was dying, and we thought they would take her away and burn her; and we wished to give her Christian burial. So I ordered a coffin to be made. But they were late in making it, and she died before it was ready; and they took her away and burnt her. And then they brought the coffin. It was a very good coffin, and I thought it would be useful; so I told them to put it under the bed in the guest-room! You did not see it, did you?鈥?Mr. Clark no doubt assured her that he had not yet made the discovery; and she went on eagerly: 鈥榊ou must not think I kept it for myself; for I have directed in my will that I should be buried without a coffin, and that my funeral expenses must not exceed five rupees.鈥? I don't have any trouble understanding why some merchant who's having a hard time competing with uswouldn't be too happy about our being there. What I haven't been able to figure at all is these peoplewho have decided we're somehow responsible for the decline of the small town. My guess is that a lot ofthese critics are folks who grew up in small towns and then deserted them for the big cities decades ago. "So I look at it, and I say, 'What are you doing wrong Samif I may call you SamI'll tell you what youare doing wrong.' I handed back his papers and I closed his attach case, and I said to him, 'Being hereis wrong, Sam. Don't unpack your bags. Go down, catch a cab, go back to the airport and go back towhere you came from and keep doing exactly what you are doing. There is nothing that can possiblyimprove what you are doing. You are a genius.' That's how I met Sam Walton."Abe invited me to join the NMRI and it turned out to be quite a valuable association for me. I was onthe board for about fifteen years, and made some terrific contacts and generous friends. I visited withAbe a number of times at his New York offices, and he was a very open guy. He shared with me how heused computers to control his merchandise. It is clear that Charlotte Tucker was profoundly impressed with the sense of living, as she said, in the First Century, instead of the Nineteenth. In another letter, soon to be quoted, she describes her Batala experience as 鈥榖eing carried back to the days of the Apostles.鈥?

This was the question asked by Miss Tucker, and she set herself bravely, as the years went on, to test and to prove how much or how little was truly needed. � Now the Pretender may his Captors mock, �  鈥楳y Munshi ... asked me to give him leave of absence on the next day, or that following it, as it would be the Muhammadans鈥?great day. He could not tell me which of the two days it would be, because all would depend on the moon. If the moon were seen on the night after the 18th, then the 19th would be the feast day, the end of the long Muhammadan fast. If the moon were not seen, the poor people must wait till the 20th. 鈥淪uppose,鈥?said I, 鈥渢hat the people at Lahore see the moon, and that those at Amritsar do not, will the Lahore folk have a feast and you a fast?鈥?A. answered in the affirmative....
