The Lion, the Mouse, and the Fox

A LION, fatigued by the heat of a summer's day, fell fast asleep

in his den. A Mouse ran over his mane and ears and woke him from

his slumbers. He rose up and shook himself in great wrath, and

searched every corner of his den to find the Mouse. A Fox seeing

him said: "A fine Lion you are, to be frightened of a Mouse."

"'Tis not the Mouse I fear," said the Lion; "I resent his

familiarity and ill-breeding."

Little liberties are great offenses.
