A COCK, scratching for food for himself and his hens, found a
Precious stone and exclaimed: "If your owner had found thee, and
Not I, he would have taken thee up, and have set thee in thy
First estate; but I have found thee for no purpose. I would
Rather have one barleycorn than all the jewels in the world."
