Story: Lion eats all things
Lion eats all things
An account of the doings of a family of lions (apparently a continuation of one of the Ichneumon’s speeches, in the myth of the Mantis) gives a good deal of conversation of such a description as might naturally be ascribed by Bushmen to lions (L II-10. 1051-1099, 11. 1100-1170). The verso pages give further details on how the lion steals up on the people and how they chase the lions away with heated embers.
