Dear Friend,

Thank you so much for your wise advice. I was very worried about how to handle the situation with the three merchants and their money. Your suggestion to only give the money back when all three of them are present together was brilliant. It saved me from a lot of trouble. I am grateful for your help and support.

Best regards,
