vf30-01 a Wolf had been gorging on an animal he had killed, 
vf30-02 when suddenly a small bone in the meat stuck in his throat
vf30-03 and he could not swallow it. 
vf30-04 He soon felt terrible pain in his throat,
vf30-05 and ran up and down groaning and groaning 
vf30-06 and seeking for something to relieve the pain. 
vf30-07 He tried to induce every one he met to remove the bone. 
vf30-08 I would give anything, said he, if you would take it out. 
vf30-09 At last the Crane agreed to try, and told the Wolf to lie on his side 
vf30-10 and open his jaws as wide as he could. 
vf30-11 Then the Crane put its long neck down the Wolf's throat, 
vf30-12 and with its beak loosened the bone, till at last it got it out. 
vf30-13 Will you kindly give me the reward you promised? said the Crane. 
vf30-14 The Wolf grinned and showed his teeth and said 
vf30-15 Be content. You have put your head inside a Wolf's mouth 
vf30-16 and taken it out again in safety; that ought to be reward enough for you. 
vf30-17 Gratitude and greed go not together 
vf30-18 a Countryman's son by accident trod upon a Serpent's tail, 
vf30-19 which turned and bit him so that he died. 
vf30-20 The father in a rage got his axe, and pursuing the Serpent, 
vf30-21 cut off part of its tail. So the Serpent in revenge began stinging 
vf30-22 several of the Farmer's cattle and caused him severe loss. 
vf30-23 Well, the Farmer thought it best to make it up with the Serpent, 
vf30-24 and brought food and honey to the mouth of its lair, and said to it 
vf30-25 Let's forget and forgive; perhaps you were right to punish my son, 
vf30-26 and take vengeance on my cattle, 
vf30-27 but surely I was right in trying to revenge him; 
vf30-28 now that we are both satisfied why should not we be friends again? 
vf30-29 No, no, said the Serpent; take away your gifts; 
vf30-30 you can never forget the death of your son, 
vf30-31 nor I the loss of my tail. Injuries may be forgiven, but not forgotten
vf30-32 Now you must know that a Town Mouse once upon a time 
vf30-33 went on a visit to his cousin in the country.   
vf30-34 He was rough and ready, this cousin, but he loved his town friend 
vf30-35 and made him heartily welcome.   Beans and bacon, cheese and bread, 
vf30-36 were all he had to offer, but he offered them freely.   
vf30-37 The Town Mouse rather turned up his long nose at this country fare, and said   
vf30-38 I cannot understand, Cousin, how you can put up with such poor food as this,   
vf30-39 but of course you cannot expect anything better in the country;   
vf30-40 come you with me and I will show you how to live.   
vf30-41 When you have been in town a week you will wonder 
vf30-42 how you could ever have stood a country life.
