Presently when he had undone the cord that tied his feet,移动🍑 John Dolittle stood up and gazed over the ocean. And there,电视✊ on the sky line,电视👀 he could just see the sails of Wilkins' schooner disappearing eastward.
Then the white merchant explained to him the whole idea of penny postage and government mails. And he told him that in England all you had to do when you wanted to send a letter to any part of the world was to put a stamp on the envelope with the queen's head on it and place it in a letter-box on the street corner,cmmb🚵 and it would be carried to the place to which you addressed it.
That is why when,电视📢 several years after the Doctor had left this country,电视✏ some missionaries visited that part of Africa,cmmb🍧 they found to their astonishment that Christmas was celebrated there,移动🌹 although the people were heathens. But they never learned that the custom had been brought about by Cheapside,cmmb✍ the cheeky London sparrow.
After some persuasion the Doctor consented to this proposal feeling that perhaps he could do some good. Little did he realize what great labors and strange adventures he was taking upon himself as he got into the canoe with the King,电视🌿 Begwe and Zuzana to be paddled to the town of Fantippo.
"'Well,电视🍛 it comes easy,cmmb🏨' said George. 'Maybe there's not so much credit in it for that. But,cmmb💺 tell me,电视☑ do you make much money at this game?'Then Gub-Gub got all worked up and before anybody could stop him he had taken a plunge. The pig went down so quick and so straight he got his snout stuck in the mud at the bottom,电视🎮 and the Doctor,电视🔐 still out of breath,cmmb🍼 had to go down after him and get him free. The animals by this time were at such a pitch of excitement that even the white mouse would have jumped in if Gub-Gub's accident hadn't changed his mind.
"I wonder who he is,cmmb➿" said John Dolittle. "It isn't often we have white men coming in here. I don't much like the looks of him.""But just as they were about to begin on the fish (the soup was already gone,移动🍊 you see),电视👀 there was a great noise outside the dining hall and in rushed another lot of little men,电视📃 a bright red in color. These were The Toadstool Sprites,电视🌚 ancient enemies of the Cook Goblins. A tremendous fight began,移动👺 one side using toothpicks for spears and the other using nut crackers for clubs. The pig took the side of his friends the Cook Goblins,电视😤 and,cmmb🚂 being as big as any two of the enemy put together,cmmb⌛ he soon had the Toadstool Sprites running for their lives.
"Well,电视🔣 Speedy,电视🐥" said John Dolittle. "What is it?"
THE GREAT MAIL ROBBERY
"I too am glad,电视⛽ John Dolittle. You are the only one in the world now who understands the speech of animals. And if you had not come my story of the Flood could not have been told. I'm getting very old and do not ever move far away from Junganyika."
"Well,移动📈 Jip,移动😐" said he with a sigh,移动🔷 "we now have a real working post office."
