Seven fables are offered here in a deteriorating pamphlet. LM, The Hare and the Rooster, Father and Son Bear, The Monkey and the Bananas, The Little Boy and the Crocodile, The Fox and the Bear, and The Chicken and the Duckling, (The titles are mine.) Several of these are new fables to me. Apparently this is an advertising pamphlet put out by the Life and Casualty Insurance Company of Tennessee, Nashville. They add some of their own aphorisms on the back cover, Start youth on the right road through systematic saving and (this--or perhaps all?--from Ben Franklin) If youth but knew what age would crave, many a penny youth would save. I am delighted to have found this ephemeral piece!
