The Devil offers Tom the riches hidden by Captain Kidd if he will sell himself to the devil.Tom wants to consult with his wife first.

"However Tom might have felt disposed to sell himself to the devil, he was determined not to do so to oblige his wife; so he flatly refused out of the mere spirit of contradiction."
