THE DOCTOR'S STORY
For a moment Too-Too's plump sides shook with silent laughter as he recalled the scene he was describing.
"Indeed?" said the Doctor. "I would like very much to meet him.""What do you want?" he asked,连城🚅 thrusting the pearls into his pocket.
Cheapside was dreadfully afraid that Mudface would get up to make a speech in reply and that it would last into the following day. But to the sparrow's relief the Doctor,聊斋🍚 immediately he had finished,连城🍢 set about preparations for his departure.
"I suppose they get rather tired of it,乔生✒ poor fellows!" murmured the Doctor."I'm afraid we're pretty poor fishers,乔生🚛" said John Dolittle. "Of course,奇女子📦 it's possible that there may not be any more pearls there."

Reaching the mouth of the river at the southern end of the lake they paused a moment before entering the mangrove swamps and looked back. And there in the distance they could just see the shape of the old turtle standing on his new island,乔生🚾 watching them.

"Good morning,结局📢" said the Doctor,连城❇ cracking open the top of a hard-boiled egg. "What can I do for you?"
"Yes,奇女子🐝 it was a hard trip,连城🔗" said the swallow. "I came near freezing to death more than once. Flying into the teeth of that frosty wind was just awful. But something had to be done. The monkeys would most likely have been wiped right out if we hadn't got you."
And while Quip had been waiting for this letter to be written he had filled in the time at Puddleby by gossiping with all the starlings and blackbirds in the Doctor's garden about the wonderful new Animals' post office on the island of No-Man's-Land. And pretty soon every creature in and around Puddleby had got to hear of it.

And then an idea came to him.
"When Noah's family first came out of the Ark,结局🙋" said the turtle,连城🍎 "they slept in little beds which they strung up between the stumps of the drowned trees.""Great heavens!" the Doctor exclaimed. "You don't say!"
"As soon as they had gone I came out of the closet and I said to the white cat: 'I shall expect you to bring up these kittens to leave ducklings alone. Now listen: To-night,乔生🌝 after the farmer and his wife are in bed,奇女子👓 take all your kittens except the black and white one,乔生🚜 and hide them in the attic. The farmer means to drown them and is going to keep only one.'
