77. De eerlijke vinder.
A Russian gentleman, in the course of a long
journey, lodged one night at the hut of a poor
Oustiach 1) peasant, and the next day on the road
missed a purse containing a hundred rubles. His
landlord's son hunting at some distance from the
hut, found 2) the purse, but left 3) it behind
him. By his father's orders, he covered it with
branches, to secure it in case an owner should
hereafter appear. After three months, the Russian
returning, lodged with the same peasant, and ac-
cidentally mentioned the loss of his purse. The
peasant, who had not first recollected him,
cried out with surprise : » Art thou the man who
lost -4) the purse ? My son shall go and shew thee
where it lies, that thou may'st take it up with
thy own hand."
1) de Ostiahen , een ruic talk in het noorden van Rusland.
2) to find. 3) to leave. 4) to lose.
78. De taetgever als vador.
Zaleucus, the Locrian, made 1) a decree, that
whoever was convicted of adultery should be
punished with the loss of his eyes. Soon after
the making this law\ the legislator's own son was
apprehended in the fact, and brought 2) to trial
before his father. How could the father behave
in so tender and delicate a conjuncture? If he
executed the law with rigour, it would be worse
than death to the unhappy youth, if he pardoned
so daring an offender, it would defeat the design '
of his salutary institution. To avoid both these
inconveniencies, he ordered one of his son's eyes
to be put out, and one of his own.
1) to make. 2) to bring.
