THE FOX IN THE WELL

AN unlucky Fox fell into a well, and cried out for help. A Wolf heard him, and looked down to see what the matter was.

[38] "Ah!" said the Fox, "pray lend a hand, friend, and get me out of this."


[Illustration]

"Poor creature," said the Wolf, "how did this come about? How long have you been here? You must be very cold."

"Come, come," says the Fox, "this is no time for pitying and asking questions; get me out of the well first, and I will tell you all about it afterwards."
