The page presented by us is absolutely among the "key pages" of the entire saga, Scrooge after having deceived the sorcerer Matumbo into giving him up his rich lands (so as to become the richest duck in the world) he retreats to his tent where he will read a letter signed by his two sisters Matilda and Ortensia: << Dear Scrooge, your life has not been easy... we have tried to justify your bitterness, your cynicism. It was hard life that made you like this! But Scrooge, there's no excuse for your dishonesty! >>, this is the moment in which Scrooge begins to distance himself from his relatives by favoring his money, from now on he will actually be the richest duck, but he will live this condition alone and without affection.
