up his potato garden.
The old man wrote to his son about it, and
received this reply,
"For HEAVENS SAKE, don't dig up that garden,
that's where I buried the money and the GUNS!!!!!"
At 4 A.M. the next morning, a dozen British
soldiers showed up and
dug up the entire garden, but didn't find
any money or guns.
