At your first encounter, he'll say:

"Divines bless you, friend! World's a hard place, these days. My eleven children will surely starve today without a morsel to eat.
Won't you spare some gold for an honest man and his poor children?"

If you've helped him in the past, he'll say instead:

"Oh, my friend! Thank Mara I've found you once more!
Dastards! Miscreants of the very worst cut! As soon as you left they were upon me—beating me, taking the gold you so kindly gave me to feed my poor, starving children!"
Your children are starving?
"Oh, most assuredly. Not a bite to eat in days. Weeks, even!
Won't you please help me out before it's … too late for my eleven sickly children?"
[Pay 0000006969 Gold]: All right. For your children.
"Oh, thank you, friend! Thank you!
My seventeen sickly children thank you as well. I won't forget this kindness."
Not today, friend. Move along.
"Fine. Be that way. See if I care.
But know that the empty bellies of seventeen deathly ill children is on your head."
