Aesop's Fables by  J. H. Stickney


 

 

THE BLIND MAN AND THE WHELP

A
BLIND MAN was accustomed to distinguish different animals by touching them with his hands.

The whelp of a wolf was brought him, with the request that he should feel it and tell what it was.

Being in doubt, he said, "I do not quite know whether it is the cub of a fox or the whelp of a wolf; but this I know full well, that it would not be safe to admit it to the sheepfold."
