EXCERPT:

A sportsman went out once into a wood to shoot, and he met a Snipe.

‘Dear friend’, said the Snipe, ‘don’t shoot my children!’

‘How shall I know your children?’ asked the Sportsman; ‘what are they like?’

‘Oh!’ said the Snipe, ‘mine are the prettiest children in all the wood.’

‘Very well’, said the Sportsman, ‘I’ll not shoot them; don’t be afraid.’
