By the time the Doctor had done,医院🈴 all his party,九龙🏭 excepting Too-Too,九龙🍩 had fallen asleep. It was only when he heard Jip suddenly snore from the hammock that he realized how late it was. As he blew out the candles again he found that it was very dark,男子😎 for now the moon had set. He climbed into bed and drew the blankets over him.
At last poor Dab-Dab,宁海📀 fully awakened,评价🌉 understood what was the matter. And in a moment she was up and doing.
"Putty is poisonous,评价☎" said the Doctor. "They appreciate the beauty of the pearls. Let them have them. But,九龙🎉" he added to the mother spoonbill,九龙♎ "if you know where any more are to be found I should be glad to know."
Then he went to call on the King,九龙🌸 as he did every so often. And in the course of conversation John Dolittle asked His Majesty if he knew who the white stranger might be that had called at the houseboat for a postal order."Oh,男子🏣 bother your feet!" cried Dab-Dab. "Let the Doctor get on with his story."
"The Doctor patted him on the shoulder"
"The double letter boxes of Fantippo"
"Good heavens!" cried the Doctor. "What can have happened? There's a lighthouse keeper living there to attend to it. Was it lighted earlier in the evening?""And that,评价😠 John Dolittle,医院⚽ is the end of the story of the Flood by one who saw it with his own eyes."
"Good luck!" cried John Dolittle. "You're the very fellow I want. Would you be so good as to run around behind my back and gnaw this beastly rope? It's hurting my wrists."
"Oh,男子🐂 not in the least,医院🌷" said the Doctor. "You birds have been most helpful to me. Tell Speedy I'll come to see him as soon as I've got my trousers on and we'll talk it over. Something can be arranged,宁海🏰 I have no doubt."
"What's all this about?" asked the Doctor.
And in the meantime he went back and continued the work of getting the domestic mail service in good running order at the post office at Fantippo."'Willie,宁海📕 we're lost! Whatever shall we do? Night is coming on and I'm so afraid of the dark.'
One morning in the first week of the return voyage when John Dolittle and his animals were all sitting at breakfast round the big table in the cabin,九龙📡 one of the swallows came down and said that he wanted to speak to the Doctor.
