Fable Aesop
The Rich Man And The Tanner
printer friendly version
A Rich Man lived near a Tanner, and not being able to bear the
unpleasant smell of the tan-yard, he pressed his neighbor to go
away. The Tanner put off his departure from time to time, saying
that he would leave soon. But as he still continued to stay, as
time went on, the rich man became accustomed to the smell, and
feeling no manner of inconvenience, made no further complaints.

(Translated by George Fyler Townsend, 1814-1900)
