The Mouse and the Lion

A Mouse ran by chance into the mouth of a Lion who lay asleep.

The Lion got up, and was just going to eat him, when the poor Mouse asked to be let go, saying, " If I am let go, I shall not forget you."

So, with a smile, the Lion let him go.

Soon the Lion was saved by the Mouse, who did not forget him; for when some men had caught him, and had tied him with ropes to a tree, the Mouse heard him roar, and came and gnawed the ropes, and let the Lion go, saying, "You smiled at me once, as if I could not do you any good turn; but now, you see, it is you who cannot forget me."
