First, you should enquire whether the time when you stole 8 thousand dollars how many people were partners in the Jew’s business and what was their ratio in the business. Then, you should pay the eight thousand dollars according to their ratio partnership. It is not necessary to tell them about the theft; even you may give them as gift or transfer in their account or tell them that I had so and so money of you with me. In short, give them in any way; you shall get rid of this burden.
