Sitting by the window of her convent, Sister Barbara opened a letter from home one evening.

Inside the letter was a $100 bill her parents had sent.

Sister Barbara smiled at the gesture. As she read the letter by the window, she noticed a shabbily dressed stranger leaning against the lamp post below.

Quickly, she wrote, "Don't despair. Sister Barbara," on a piece of paper, wrapped the $100 bill in it, got the man's attention and tossed it out the window to him.

The stranger picked it up, and with a puzzled expression and a tip of his hat, went off down the street.

The next day, Sister Barbara was told that a man was at her door, insisting on seeing her.

She went down, and found the stranger waiting.

Without a word, he handed her a huge wad of $100 bills.

"What's this?" she asked.

"That's the $8,000 you have coming Sister," he replied.

"Don't Despair paid 80-to-1."

When I hear "Sister Barbara",I a reminded of the Emergency! episode about the bible school bus that went off the road,rolled over and the driver (Sister Barbara) was trapped while having Roy (Desoto) say a prayer for her.

the man thought that Sister Barb wants to pitch in for some form of gambling (either dog race or horse race or similar): to the note sez" don't dispair, Sister Barb".

So when the man returns (won), he gave back her (sis) winning share...

That's how I interpret it.
