an honest woman that was going to market, . what,
must your fat carcass be carried, whilst the poor
lad there is up to his knees in the dirt, and can
scarce drag one leg after the other?" The old man
upon this took 5) his son up behind him. . Hark
ye, old fellow," says a higgler that met him imme-
diately after, »prithee let me ask you one question,
friend ; is that ass your own?" — » Yes, it is,"

along their ass in this manner, over a bridge,
which led 7) into the Market-Place, the people,
at so unusual a sight, set up a general shout.
The old fellow, with all his patience and good-
nature, unable to support this last affront, threw 8)
his ass, in a passion, over the bridge into the
river, and went home again about his business.
1) to drive. 2) to meet. 3) in plants van you will.
4) to get. 5) to take. 6) to find. 7) to lead. 8) to throw.
