Aesop's Fables in J&D Latin Reader

Fable 11. Cancri

Cancer
dicebat filio:
Mi fili,
ne
sic obliquis semper gressibus
incede,
sed recta via perge.
Cui ille,
Mi pater, respondit,
libenter tuis praeceptis obsequar,
si te prius
idem facientem videro.
Docet haec fabula,
adolescentiam
nulla re magis
quam exemplis,
instrui.
