    Answer:

    My name is Gafhergold. I left my home and the valley of the Great Stone Face fifty years back in pursuit of wealth.
    I have been successful and earned a lot of money. I am rich now and going back to the valley. But will the people of the valley welcome me or will they condone me for leaving the home. Will they accept me and allow me to be a part of the valley.
    I will try my best. May be they would respect me because of my wealth. Yes/I will tell them how rich I became and surely that would make them respect me and accept me back.
