279 - Jupiter and the Monkey

Back
Next

 
 


Jupiter issued a proclamation to all the beasts of the forest and promised a royal reward to the one whose offspring should be deemed the handsomest. 

The Monkey came with the rest and presented, with all a mother's tenderness, a flat-nosed, hairless, ill-featured young Monkey as a candidate for the promised reward. 

A general laugh saluted her on the presentation of her son. 

She resolutely said, 

"I know not whether Jupiter will allot the prize to my son, but this I do know, that he is at least in the eyes of me his mother, the dearest, handsomest, and most beautiful of all."


We must always be proud of what we love, and to have no sorrow in publishing it.
