before her young brood were fledged, and able
to remove from the place. Wherefore, upon
flying abroad to look for food, she left I) this
charge with them: That they should take notice
what they heard talked of in her absence, and

next time, and be sure you let me know it."
She went abroad the next day, as usual, and
the owner finding his relations as slack as the
rest of his neighbours, said to his son: »Ilarkye,
