L'Estrange: An Ass and a Wolf

An Ass had got a Thorn in’s Foot, and for want of a better Surgeon, who but a Wolf at last to draw it out with his Teeth! The Ass was no sooner eas’d, but he gave his Operator such a Kick under the Ear with his sound Foot for his Pains, that he stunn’d him, and so went his way.

Harm watch, Harm catch, is but according to the common Rule of Equity and Retaliation, and a very warrantable Way of deceiving the Deceiver.
