The Cock and the Jewel





A COCK, scratching for food for himself and his hens, found a

precious stone and exclaimed: "If your owner had found thee, and

not I, he would have taken thee up, and have set thee in thy

first estate; but I have found thee for no purpose. I would

rather have one barleycorn than all the jewels in the world."
