The Hares and the Foxes

103. THE HARES AND THE FOXES. There goes an Old Story of a bloody War betwixt the Hares, and the Eagles; and the Hares would fain have drawn the Foxes into their Alliance; but very Frankly and Civilly they gave them this Answer, That they would serve them with all their Hearts, if they did not perfectly understand both the Hares themselves, and the Enemy they were to Cope withal. THE MORAL. There’s no Entering into any League, without well Examining the Faith and Strength of the Parties to’t. (Sir Roger L'Estrange) [more info]
