The Blackamoor.
uEiop, who has a fable illustrative
of every phase of life, has left us one
appropriate to the ell rt uow on loo
to erect dverv negro hit a vo e 'in I to
make him tlu wiiite inn's eqial.
iEsop says;
"A. cert Yin nun having bonght a
blachamoor, was so simple as to
think that the col ir ol his skin was
only dark and tilth, which he had
c infracted for want of due care under
is former m:ifi!nr. This fault he
imag'ned might oasity ba removed.
So he order .-it tho poor black to bo
put into a tub, and was at connidera
bl" charge in providing ashes, soap,
and scrubbing brushes for the opor
htion. To work they went, rubbing
and conring his skin all over, but to
no manner of purpose, for when they
had reperted their washings several
times, and wore grown quite wearv
in all they got by it was that the
wretchi d Blackamoor caught cold
and died." ,
