L'Estrange: A Pigeon and a Crow

A Pigeon that was brought up in a Dove-House, was Bragging to a Crow how Fruitful she was. Never Value your self, says the Crow, upon that Vanity; for the more Children the more Sorrow.

Many Children are a Great Blessing; but a Few Good Ones are a Greater; All Hazards consider’d.
