"'I want you to come over here by the trough,美女🎮 Jip,鳄鱼🏆' said he. 'All you've got to do is to keep still. You can go to sleep if you like. But don't move or fidget for ten minutes. Think you can do that?'
"Where are the oyster beds around here?" asked the Doctor.
Poor Zuzana began weeping some more when the Doctor said he would have to give up for the night.
"Well,鳄鱼😁 but what shall I tell you a story about?" asked John Dolittle.
And this was how the first letter was sent off by the Swallow Mail: King Koko himself came one morning and,国剧⛪ putting his large face in at the information window,国剧🌐 asked:
"Well,美女✳ the fourth week after the enemy came the food in the castle was all gone and the king gave orders that the pigs must be eaten. The queen raised a great outcry and begged that her pet should be spared. But the king was very firm."'Jumping Cheese!' I cried. 'Dye me black!'
A MOST UNUSUAL POST OFFICE
"Doctor,美女🚵" panted the gull,美女⛵ "the Cape Stephen Light is out. I don't know what's the matter. It has never gone out before. We use it as a land-mark,国剧🍔 you know,国剧📫 when we are flying after dark. The night's as black as ink. I'm afraid some ship will surely run into the cape. I thought I'd come and tell you."
And then because so many letters were written him about good manners and proper behavior,鳄鱼🚆 he wrote a "Book of Etiquette for Animals." It is still a very famous work,鳄鱼🍶 though copies of it are rare now. But when he wrote it the Doctor printed a first edition of fifty thousand copies and sent them all out by mail in one week. It was at this time,美女🌏 too,美女📚 that he wrote and circulated another very well-known book of his called "One-Act Plays for Penguins."
"But I don't understand,美女💯" said John Dolittle. "I thought Wilkins had made off with them."
