L'Estrange: A Mouse and a Kite.

A Simple Mouse had the Fortune to be near at hand, when a Kite was taken in a Net. The Kite begg'd of her to try if she could help her out. The Mouse gnaw'd a Hole in't, and set her at Liberty; and the Kite eat up the Mouse for her pains.

Save a Thief from the Gallows, and he'll cut your Throat.
