Frog

.

A frog and mouse agreed to settle by single combat their claims to a marsh; but, while they fought, a kite carried them both off. (Æsop: Fables, clxviii.)

“Old Æsop’s fable, where he told

What fate unto the mouse and frog befel.”


Cary: Dante, cxxiii.

Nie Frog is the Dutchman (not Frenchman) in Arbuthnot’s History of John Bull. Frogs are calledDutch nightingales.”
