The text excerpt on display is from the “Application” portion that follows each fable in this book, instructing readers on the story’s moral and on the appropriate course of action after the conclusion of the story. For Town Mouse Country Mouse, the accompanying advice is longer than the text of the tale within the volume and offers readers explicit insight into the politics of the time shortly after the French revolution, which started in 1789.
