GOOD-BYE TO FANTIPPO
Once more,hao123😺 with the guide in front,hao123🐚 but this time at a much better pace,有钱🌵 the party set off.
The sun had not yet risen on the gloomy waters of Lake Junganyika before Jip felt the Doctor stirring in his hammock,有钱⏳ preparing to get up."'Ah! Now I feel better.'
Tea was served at once; and His Majesty seemed so delighted at renewing this pleasant custom that John Dolittle was loath to break the news to him that he must shortly resign from the Foreign Mail Service and sail for England. However,hao123💈 while they were chatting on the veranda of the houseboat a fleet of quite large sailing vessels entered the harbor. These were some of the new merchant craft of Fantippo which plied regularly up and down the coast,携手🍋 trading with other African countries. The Doctor pointed out to the king that mails intended for foreign lands could now be quite easily taken by these boats to the bigger ports on the coast where vessels from Europe called every week.
And the poor Doctor was dragged away by the Master-at-arms toward a stair leading to the lower decks. But at the head of the stairs he caught hold of the handrail and hung on long enough to shout back to the Captain:
After hanging around a while they paddled back and told the Emir that they could find no more pearl oysters on the rocks. He sent them out to look again; but they returned with the same report.
"To Chief Nyam-Nyam and his people,携手🏥 of course. He owns the Harmattan Rocks. Would you mind,有钱📃" the Doctor asked,携手😔 turning to the cormorant,hao123🌴 "getting me a few oysters of this kind to look at?"
"Well,携手📄 wouldn't you like to keep them,携手🚆 then?" asked the spoonbill. "I could get the children something else to play with,hao123♨ no doubt."
"I suspect,hao123㊗" said Speedy,有钱🍏 "that you'll find most of the letters will be written to you,携手🎈 Doctor. I've met birds all over creation who wanted to know what you looked like,hao123🐀 what you ate for breakfast and all sorts of silly things about you."
