L'Estrange: Two Friends and a Bear.

Two Friends that were Travelling together, had the Fortune to meet a Bear upon the Way. They found there was no running for't. So the One Whips up a Tree, and the Other throws himself Flat with his Face upon the Ground. The Bear comes directly up to him, Muzzles, and Smells him, puts his Nose to his Mouth, and to his Ears, and at last taking for granted that 'twas only a Carcase, there he leaves him. The Bear was no sooner gone, but down comes his Companion, and ask'd him what it was the Bear Whisper'd him in the Ear. He bad me have a Care, says he, how I keep Company with those that when they find themselves upon a Pinch, will leave their Friends in the Lurch.

Every man for Himself, and God for us All.
