L'Estrange: A Fisherman's Good Luck

A Fisherman had been a long while at work without catching any thing, and so in great Trouble and Despair, he resolv'd to take up his Tackle and be gone: But in that very instant a great Fish leapt into the Boat, and by Providence made a tolerable Day on't.

Patience, Constancy, and Perseverance, is an honest Cause, and Duty can never fail of a happy End, one way or other.
