However, they were able to collect only a little more than 50 pesos as requested by Lencho. The postmaster put the money in an envelope. It was addressed to Lencho.
On Sunday, Lencho once again came to the post-office. He asked if there was a letter for him and the post office employee handed it to Lencho. Lencho was not surprised after seeing the money.
But when he counted the money, he became angry with God. He was sure that God could not have made a mistake. He took paper and ink and wrote one more letter to God. Then he put it into the letter-box.
After Lencho had left the place, the postmaster and the employees read the letter. In it, Lencho had complained to God that he received only seventy pesos. Also, he requested God to send him the rest of the money this time. However, he asked God not to send the money through the mail. He wrote that the post-office employees were a bunch of cooks and thus might have stolen the money.
The chapter A letter to God is about Lencho was the great devotee of God. He wrote the letter to god confidently without thinking that god will send or not the money. Employee of post office were kind hearted to understand about the faith and need Lencho had.
