Aesop's Fables by  J. H. Stickney




LITTLE Boy once went in bathing where the water was too deep for him. When found himself sinking, he cried out to a Man who was passing by, to come and help him.

"Canít you swim?" asked the Man.

[88] "No," replied the Boy, "I donít know how."

"How foolish you were, then," said the Man, "to go into deep water! Didnít you know better?"

"Oh, good sir, please help me now, or I shall drown!" cried the Boy. "You can scold me when I am safe on shore again."
