Fable Aesop
The Partridge And The Fowler
printer friendly version
A Fowler caught a Partridge and was about to kill it. The Partridge
earnestly begged him to spare his life, saying, "Pray, master,
permit me to live and I will entice many Partridges to you in
recompense for your mercy to me."

The Fowler replied, "I shall now with less scruple take your life,
because you are willing to save it at the cost of betraying your
friends and relations."

(Translated by George Fyler Townsend, 1814-1900)
