Here are the next 350 of the 1000 promised stories. #446 is a Tony de Mello story stolen from Aesop. A donkey wading through a river with a load of salt frisks around after crossing, delighted to have lost his load. The next market day the owner loads the donkey with cotton, who tries the same trick and nearly drowns. #541 is about the Londoner Jonas Hanway. He "refused to accept that he had to get wet when it rained. Having seen a tent-like contraption in the Orient as protection against the sun, he adapted it for the rain. The umbrella was born." #602-614 are all attributed to Aesop. There are many more de Mello stories in this volume than in the first. Subject and title indices at the back.
