Of the asse / and of the wulf

4.13. De asino aegro et lupo
Caxton: Of the asse / and of the wulf
To none euylle man feythe ne trouthe ought neuer to be adiousted / As men may wel see by this Fable / Of a wulf whiche vysyted an asse whiche was wel seke the whiche wulf beganne to fele and taste hym / and demaunded of hym / My broder and my frend where aboute is thy sore / And the asse sayd to hym / there as thow tastest / And thenne the wulf faynyng to vysyte hym / beganne to byte and smyte hym /
And therfore men must not trust flaterers / For one thynge they saye / and done another
