L'Estrange: An Ass and Two Travellers.

A Couple of Travellers that took up an Ass in a Forest, fell downright to Loggerheads, which of the two should be his Master: So the Ass was to stand by, to see those Two Boobies try their Title to him by a Rubber of Cuffs. The Ass very fairly look'd on, till they had Box'd themselves a-weary, and then left them both in the Lurch.

'Tis a common thing, both in Love, Law and Arms, for Plaintiff and Defendant to lie battering one another for a Prize that gives them both the slip.
