Fable Aesop
The Hunter And The Horseman
printer friendly version
A certain Hunter, having snared a hare, placed it upon his shoulders
and set out homewards. On his way he met a man on horseback
who begged the hare of him, under the pretense of purchasing it.
However, when the Horseman got the hare, he rode off as fast as
he could. The Hunter ran after him, as if he was sure of overtaking
him, but the Horseman increased more and more the distance
between them. The Hunter, sorely against his will, called out to him
and said, "Get along with you! for I will now make you a present of
the hare."

(Translated by George Fyler Townsend, 1814-1900)
