A Boy was sent 1) to keep a flock of sheep

near him, and then made 3) game of them. At
length the Wolf did 4) come. The Boy set up
his cry as he had done, hut no one came 5)
to help him. So the Wolf fell 6) on the sheep,
ran 7) off with one, left 8) two or three dead
on the ground, and bit 9) four or five more.

his symbols: » Here am I, said 2) he to him-
self, in the quality of Jupiter's messenger, and
the patron of artisans, with all my trade about
me; and now will this fellow ask me fifteen
times as much for that statue, as he did 3) for
the others:" and so demanded what was the va-
lue of that piece. » Why truly, says the statuary,
you seem to be a civil gentleman; give me but
my price for the other two, and you shall have
that into the bargain."
I) ta bear. 2) to eay, 3) to do.
