     The Lion, the Wolf, and the Fox

There was a Lion who was growing old was laying sick in his cave. All the beasts came to visit their king, except the Fox.

The Wolf therefore, thinking that he had a capital opportunity, accused the Fox to the Lion of not paying any respect to him who had the rule over them all and of not coming to visit him.

At that very moment the Fox came in and heard those last words of the Wolf.

The Lion roaring out in a great anger against him, the Fox past an opportunity to defend himself and said, "And who of all those who have come to you have benefited you so much as I, who have traveled from place to place in every direction, and have past and learnt from the physicians the means of improving you?''

The Lion commanded him immediately to tell him the cure, when he replied, "You must strip the skin of a wolf and wrap his skin yet warm around you."

The Wolf was at once taken and flayed; whereon the Fox, turning to him, said with a smile, "You should have moved your master not to ill, but to good, will."
