"How dare you speak to me like that? I am the Emir of Ellebubu,电影✴" he thundered.
And now all was excitement aboard the Violet as they approached the slave boat lying crippled in the sea. Bones,电影💷 the captain,迷途🔐 with his crew of eleven other ruffians,古墓💰 was taken prisoner and put down in the cells of the warship. Then the Doctor,俄语👛 with Zuzana,电影⌛ some sailors and an officer,古墓⛽ went on to the slave ship. Entering the hold,古墓🔵 they found the place packed with slaves with chains on them. And Zuzana immediately recognized her husband and wept all over him with joy.
Still another thing in which the Doctor's post office was different from all others was the gum used on the stamps. The supply of gum which the King had been using for his stamps ran short and the Doctor had to set about discovering and making a new kind. And after a good deal of experiment he invented a gum made of licorice,电影🚠 which dried quickly and worked very well. But,电影🚿 as I have said,俄语♒ the Fantippans were very fond of sweetmeats. And soon after the new gum was put into use the post office was crowded with people buying stamps by the hundred.
"I don't know what I'll say to him. I'll see when I get there,古墓📡" said John Dolittle. "But we must be very careful how we approach,俄语😗 so that he doesn't see us coming. If he should pull up his anchor and sail away we would never be able to overtake him by canoe."
Then John Dolittle told the Captain the whole story of Zuzana and her troubles. And all the other officers on the ship gathered around to listen.
This woman's name was Zuzana and her husband was a very strong and fine-looking man. The King of Fantippo would have kept Zuzana's husband for this reason,迷途🍹 because he liked to have strong men at his court. But the slave traders also wanted strong men,古墓😧 for they could do a lot of work on the plantations. And they offered the King of Fantippo a specially high price for Zuzana's husband. And the king had sold him.
The Doctor was introduced to all the chief men of the Fantippo nation and later he was taken to see the post office.
By the end of that week the Doctor had,古墓🉐 indeed,俄语🌳 made good his promise. The country of Chief Nyam-Nyam became famous all along the coast of West Africa as a wealthy state.
The Doctor ran into the post office kitchen and woke the poor housekeeper,俄语🈂 who was slumbering soundly beside the kitchen stove."Let's see what I can do,迷途🍙" said Jip. And out of the canoe jumped another pearl fisherman.
This place he found very different from any of the African villages or settlements he had ever visited. It was quite large,古墓📼 almost a city. It was bright and cheerful to look at and the people,古墓📡 like their King,电影🆎 all seemed very kind and jolly.
