Aesop's Fables by  J. H. Stickney




DONKEY was one day walking through a pond, with a load of wood on his back, when his foot slipped and he fell.

"Help, help!" cried the poor Donkey [76] as he struggled and kicked in the water. But his load was so heavy that he could not rise, and he groaned aloud.

The Frogs heard his groans but showed no pity. "What a foolish fellow," said they, "to make such a fuss about a little fall into the water. What would you say if you had to live here always, as we do?"
