Aesops - the wolf and the dog
A GAUNT Wolf was almost dead with hunger when he
happened to meet a House-dog who was passing by. Ah,
Cousin, said the Dog. I knew how it would
be; your irregular life will soon be the ruin of you.
Why do you not work steadily as I do, and get your
food regularly given to you? 1
I would have no objection, said the Wolf,
if I could only get a place. 2
I will easily arrange that for you, said
the Dog; come with me to my master and you shall
share my work. 3
So the Wolf and the Dog went towards the town together.
On the way there the Wolf noticed that the hair on
a certain part of the Dogs neck was very much
worn away, so he asked him how that had come about.
Oh, it is nothing, said the Dog. That
is only the place where the collar is put on at night
to keep me chained up; it chafes a bit, but one soon
gets used to it. 5
Is that all? said the Wolf. Then
good-bye to you, Master Dog.

To announce that there must be no criticism of the
President, or that we are to stand by the President,
right or wrong, is not only unpatriotic and servile,
but is morally treasonable to the American public."
