Theory:

The following Sunday Lencho came a bit earlier than usual to ask if there was a letter for him. It was the postman himself who handed the letter to him while the postmaster, experiencing the contentment of a man who has performed a good deed, looked on from his office. 

 

Lencho showed not the slightest surprise on seeing the money; such was his confidence — but he became angry when he counted the money. God could not have made a mistake, nor could he have denied Lencho what he had requested.

Explanation:

 

The following Sunday, Lencho arrived a little earlier than normal to inquire if he had received a letter. The letter was delivered by the postman personally, while the postmaster watched from his office, filled with the joy of a man who has done a good thing.


When Lencho saw the letter, he showed no surprise; such was his confidence — but when he counted the money, he became enraged. 'God couldn't have made a mistake, and he certainly couldn't have refused Lencho his wish', thought he.
