Leave the past in the past and pay back a thief as I agreed or use the past to avoid repayment.

A friend (let's call him Bob) stole a pair of sunglasses he had sold to me after I gave him £90 for them on behalf of a third party (Tom) who'd given me the money. Bob denied taking his sunglasses back at first and Tom, fairly well off and knowing I was skint, took the £90 hit. Recently Bob has admitted to me he took the sunglasses and has lent me £40 on the condition that we leave the past in the past and I pay him back. Now I'm wandering if I should pay him back. I am still skint and he really doesn't need the money as much as me, though he isn't rich and lives off state incapacity benefit. Tom recently got a promotion and really won't miss £90. .
