L'Estrange: An Ass and a Shadow.

One Hir'd an Ass in the Dog-Days to carry certain Bails of Goods to such a Town: 'Twas Extream Hot, so that he lay down upon the Way to Refresh himself under the Shade of the Ass. The Muletier bad him Rise, and go on acording to his Bargain. T'other said that the Ass was His for the time he had Hir'd him. Right, says the other, You have Hir'd the Ass, but not the Shadow.

Work for the Lawyers.
