L'Estrange: A Fowler and a Pigeon

As a Country Fellow was making a Shoot at a Pigeon, he trod upon a Snake that bit him by the Leg. The Surprize startled him, and away flew the Bird.

We are to distinguish betwixt the Benefits of good Will, and those of Providence: For the latter are immediately from Heaven, where no humane Intention intervenes.
