AND A LONG TALE.

so that her idea of the tale was something like this:—— "Fury said to

a mouse, That
           he met
             in the
               house,

            'Let us
           both go
         to law:
       I will
    prosecute

 you.
    Come, I'll
      take no
        denial;
          We must

            have a
                 trial:
                      For
                 really
               this

                morning
                         I've
                  nothing
               to do.'

            Said the
          mouse to
        the cur,
          'Such a
                trial,
           dear sir,
        With no

      jury or
    judge,
      would be
        wasting
          our breath.'

            'I'll be
             judge.
          I'll be
        Jury,'
      Said
        cunning

   old Fury;
       'I'll try
         the whole
           cause,

            and
          condemn
         you
        to
          death.''
