One of the sixty-seven chapters in this unusual book is devoted to Aesop's fables, surprisingly in the midst of Columbus' discovery of America, banks and checks, the Liberty Bell, and U.S. government (Ch. XXI on 75-77). The introduction to fable speaks of the experience of finding a second and often a third moral in one story. Two fables are presented: The Boy Bather and The Father and His Sons. The former has a good moral: Scolding (or advice) without help, is of little use.
