De wolf en de kraanvogel,
A Woliy after devouring his prey, happened
to have a bone stiek in his throat, which gavel)
him so much pain, that he went 2) howling up
and down, and importuning every creature he
met, 3) to lend him a kind hand in order to

have a tolerable voice. If it is t)ut as fine as
your complexion, I don't 6) know a bird that
