A huntsman, returning with his dogs from the field, met by chance a fisherman who was bringing home a basket well laden with fish. The huntsman wished to have the fish, and the owner of the fish experienced an equal longing for the contents of the game-bag. They quickly agreed to exchange the products of their day's sport. Each was so well pleased with his bargain that they made for some time the same exchange day after day. Finally a neighbour said to them, "If you go on in this way, you will soon destroy by frequent use the pleasure of your exchange, and each will again wish to retainthe fruits of his own sport."
