Passenger's Fare
At first sight you would hardly think there was matter for dispute in the question involved in the following little incident, yet it took the two persons concerned some little time to come to an agreement.
Mr. Smithers hired a motor-car to take him from Addleford to Clinkerville and back again for £3.
At Bakenham, just midway, he picked up an acquaintance, Mr. Tompkins, and agreed to take him on to Clinkerville and bring him back to Bakenham on the return journey.
How much should he have charged the passenger? That is the question.
What was a reasonable fare for Mr. Tompkins?
