I have with me two scrolls which tell stories from the time when Heracleopolis was the supreme city. One of them is a speech to the Pharaoh from a wise man named Ipuwer, and is commonly called "The Admonitions of an Egyptian Sage." The other is a political anecdote from that period, "The Tale of the Peasant and the Workman." Would you like me to read one to you?
