The Lion and the Fox

A FOX entered into partnership with a Lion on the pretense of

becoming his servant. Each undertook his proper duty in

accordance with his own nature and powers. The Fox discovered

and pointed out the prey; the Lion sprang on it and seized it.

The Fox soon became jealous of the Lion carrying off the Lion's

share, and said that he would no longer find out the prey, but

would capture it on his own account. The next day he attempted

to snatch a lamb from the fold, but he himself fell prey to the

huntsmen and hounds.
