Fables exist in many versions; here is one version in English:

slave ran straight into the mill and his master said, 'Where better could I
have hoped to have found you!'

You can find a compilation of Perry's index to the Aesopica in the gigantic appendix to his
edition of Babrius and Phaedrus for the Loeb Classical Library
(Harvard University Press: Cambridge, 1965). This book is an absolute must for anyone interested
in the Aesopic fable tradition. Invaluable.
