L'Estrange: Hungry Dogs and a Raw-Hide.

A Company of Hungry Curs Discover'd a Raw-Hide in the Bottom of a River, and laid their Heads together how to come at it: They Canvass'd the matter one way and t'other, and brought it to this Issue in the Conclusion, that the only way to get it, was to Drink their way to't. So they fell to Lapping and Guzzling, 'till in one Word, they Burst themselves, and never the nearer.

He that sets his Heart upon Things Impossible, shall be sure to Lose his Longing.
