He decided to write God a letter requesting the money. When the postal authorities received the letter to "God, USA," they decided to send it to the president. The president was so amused that he instructed his secretary to send him a $5 bill. He reasoned that $5 would be a lot to a little boy.
The boy received the $5 bill and began to write a thank you note to God.
"Dear God, Thanks for sending me the money. However, I noticed for some reason you sent it through Washington, D.C., and those jerks deducted $95 in taxes."
