Toward the end of the pile the Doctor came across a very peculiar thick envelope,百度🐞 all over mud. For a long time none of them could make out a single word of the letter inside,惊喜👼 nor even who it was from.

"Look here,惊喜🌙 Doctor,弟弟🚝 if we can't raise a canoe,百度💊 let's you and I swim out to the island. It's not over a mile and a half and we're both good swimmers."
