Aesop's Fables by  J. H. Stickney


 

 

THE CAMEL

W
HEN man first beheld the Camel, he was so awed by his vast size that he fled away from him in terror.

But after a time, perceiving the meekness and gentleness of the animalís temper, he summoned courage to approach him. The Camel so readily obeyed the commands that were given him, and seemed so wanting in spirit, [115] that at last the man put a bridle in his mouth and set a child to guide him.

Since then Camels are valued for the service they render.
