A Friend In Need Is A Friend Indeed

Posted by Brian G. Sullivan on April 11, 2006

I couldn't help noticing the phrase "A Friend In Need Is A Friend Indeed."
I learned this as a child to be "A Friend In Need Is A Friend In Deed" Meaning that a true friend would always return a kindness or favor. This came from my grandmother who was born in 1899. Has anyone else heard this explaination?
