The Wolf and the Sheep

A WOLF, that had been bitten by a dog and was unable to move, begged a Sheep that passed by to take pity on his sad case and fetch him some water from a stream. "If you will bring me a drink," said he, "I will find meat myself."

"Yes," said the Sheep, "I make no doubt of it; for if I come near enough to give you the drink, you will make mincemeat of me."
