There is a story of his attending a large sale of tobacco at a warehouse in Augusta.
The bidders, not knowing Ready Money, figured to allow him to bid on a small lot at a bargain price and get rid of him.
However, after he bid on a lot and won it for a small price, the auctioneer asked?
"How much do you want, sir?"
Ready answered "the entire lot."
"Who is the bidder?"
"Ready Money Scott, and here it is; I want the keyes, sir."
Thus, Ready Money made a great of money on this purchase.
