"All right,做法📋 Gub-Gub,雪糕🚨" said the Doctor,家庭💖 "I'll see what I can do. We will send a letter to England by the next mail going out and ask the thrushes to bring you your Brussels sprouts."
"Listen,做法📭 Doctor,家庭🚓" said Jip. "You were wondering just now what to write the Cats'-Meat-Man about. Let Speedy write the letter to Cheapside in bird scribble and you inclose it in a letter to the Cats'-Meat-Man. Then when the sparrow comes to Puddleby for his summer visit the Cats'-Meat-Man can give it to him."
Overhead the thick jungle arched and hung like a tunnel of green. This was a good thing by day-time,牛奶📓 as it kept the sun off better than a parasol. And in the dry stretches of river bed,做法🚎 where the Doctor had to carry or drag the canoe on home-made runners,牛奶♍ the work was hard and shade something to be grateful for.
"Dab-Dab looked over his shoulder"
"'Fine!' says the old rat. 'Now run around the shed a few times,做法🚰 so you won't take a chill. And then go to bed and cover up. In the morning when it's light you'll find yourself very different.'
So the Doctor got talking to the King and he told him in plain language that he ought to be ashamed of his post office. Then,自制💼 giving him a cup of China tea,做法✔ he explained to him how Zuzana's letter had probably never been delivered to her cousin.
"I would like,牛奶🚖" said the Doctor,牛奶🏈 "to be able to prophesy weather for every part of the world. I really don't see why I shouldn't; this office,牛奶🌿 together with my branch offices,家庭👛 is in communication with birds going to every corner of the earth. I could improve the farming and the agriculture of the whole human race. But also,雪糕👦 and especially,牛奶🍸 I want to have a bureau for ocean weather,牛奶🌒 to help the ships."For a moment Too-Too's plump sides shook with silent laughter as he recalled the scene he was describing.
"Great heavens!" cried the Doctor,自制🐓 springing up. "The pearls gone? And they were registered,牛奶📐 too!"
"I've brought you this letter,雪糕📝" said the snake. "It's from the turtle. He is wondering why he got no answer to his first."
The bird chosen to take the package happened to be one of the thrushes that had brought the Brussels sprouts from England. These birds were still staying in the neighborhood. And though a thrush was a somewhat small bird to carry parcel post,自制🍄 the package was a very little one and the Doctor had nobody else to send. So after explaining to the thrush that registered mail should be guarded very carefully by postmen,牛奶⚪ the Doctor sent the pearls off.And now John Dolittle and his animals got tremendously busy arranging the post office,自制☔ its furniture,家庭📈 the stamp drawers,牛奶🚁 the postcard drawers,家庭🐁 the weighing scales,做法👳 the sorting bags and all the rest of the paraphernalia. Dab-Dab,家庭🚼 of course,家庭👂 was housekeeper,自制❔ as usual,雪糕📘 and she saw to it that the post office was swept properly every morning. Jip was the watchman and had charge of locking up at night and opening in the morning. Too-Too,牛奶👷 with his head for mathematics,牛奶🐨 was given the bookkeeping,家庭😴 and he kept account of how many stamps were sold and how much money was taken in. The Doctor ran the information window and answered the hundred and one questions that people are always asking at post offices. And the good and trusty Speedy was here,家庭🎮 there and everywhere.
