The Fox and the Crow

01. THE FOX AND THE CROW. A CROW stole a piece of cheese and alighted with it on a tree. A Fox watched her and, wishing to get hold of the cheese, stood underneath and began to make compliments upon her size and beauty. He went so far as to say that she had the best of claims to be made Queen of the Birds and doubtless it would have been done if she had only had a voice. The Crow, anxious to prove to him that she did possess a voice, began to caw vigorously, of course dropping the cheese. The FOX pounced upon it and carried it off, remarking as he went away, "My good friend Crow, you have every good quality; now try to get some common sense." [more info]
