    Virginia jefferies will never be accused of spending a fortune

    I would like to know the meaning of "1".
    1: Virginia jefferies will never be accused of spending a fortune, unless you consider her charitable donations.



    Virginia jefferies will never be accused of spending a fortune, unless you consider her charitable donations. Born in 1945, Ms Jefferies grew up in a modest family. She was taught to buy only what she needed and to be cautious about going into debt. And that's exactly how she lived. For 40 years, Ms Jefferies taught at an elementary school, and she developed a reputation for living a simple lifestyle. The only times she borrowed money were to purchase a used car, later, a small house. what nobody knew was, every month, she was saving one-third of her paycheck. On the day Ms Jefferies retired, she wrote a check for 250,000 to a children's hospital. This modest teacher, with one stroke of her pen, became the most generous benefactor in the hospital's history.

    And please tell us if the original author failed to capitalise "Jefferies" (Virginia's surname), or if that was your error.
    Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.
