Facsimile #5 - The Story of the Monkey and the Tortoise by Jose Rizal

After a long search, he found the tortoise.

Nakita niya ang pagong pagkaraan ng matagal na paghahanap.

You wretched creature, here you are! said heYou must pay for your wickedness; you must die.

Narito ka pala, hamak na pagong, ang sabi niya.  Magbabayad ka sa iyong kasamaan; dapat kang mamatay.
