The Promissory Note!

I promise the bearer to pay one hundred rupees.

–signed governor

Reading the note credulous seraphic kid went to the house of governor and showing him the note held in his hand demanded him to pay the sum he had promised in the note written on the note.

Are you mad? The very note you’ve in your hand is the money promised said governor.

Oh, is that so, why then did you need to make a promise?

That was needed to authenticate the note–a fiat, governor said.

Then your signatures would’ve sufficed-why add another note?

That’s custom, an economical,constitutional,federal issue which can’t be grasped by your simple mind I am afraid.
