Do you think Lutkins was right in befooling the lawyer and earning money by using unfair means? What precautions should be taken to avoid a situation like the one in which the lawyer was placed?

No, it is not right on Lutkins’s part in befooling the lawyer and earning money by using unfair means. Because it is said, “Honesty is the best Policy”. But this was not applicable on Lutkin’s part. He was very cunning and daring. He was not scared to befool the employee of law. And playing with the law is never a good thing. Oliver Lutkins had taken undue advantage of the lawyer’s gullibility and taking him around the village, chasing himself. He charged him two dollars an hour for that work. He not only charged him money for the ‘service’ but also subjected him to immense ridicule by his mother and village folk. Such dishonest and unethical behaviour of Lutkins can never be endorsed. We the readers should remember that deceptive people are all around us. We should first judge a person thoroughly and then only trust strangers. We should be beware of such people who are always on the prowl to grab an opportunity to cheat and not be trusted by strangers.
