"'Yes,阻燃剂🐽' said the spaniel. 'We are staying at The Royal George. My master is painting some pictures of the country and next week he is going back to London to commence on the portrait of the prince.'
"The gull caught the tomato skin with a lightning lunge"
Then the Doctor and the leaders agreed upon a regular kind of simple,价格🏈 easy writing for all birds to use,阻燃剂🚕 so that the addresses on the envelopes could be understood and read by the post birds. And at last John Dolittle sent them off home again,阻燃剂🎫 to instruct their relatives in this new writing and reading and explain to all the birds of all the world how the post office was going to work and how much good he hoped it would do for the education and betterment of the Animal Kingdom. Then he went home and had a good sleep.
Reaching the mouth of the river at the southern end of the lake they paused a moment before entering the mangrove swamps and looked back. And there in the distance they could just see the shape of the old turtle standing on his new island,价格🌒 watching them. They waved to him and pushed on.
"Splendid,阻燃剂🚟" cried the Doctor. "It's a kind of short-hand. You say a whole sentence in four signs."
The Doctor said afterward that he had never seen a bird who reminded him so much of a sailor. He had the rolling,阻燃剂📕 straddling walk of a seafaring man; he smelt strongly of fish; and whenever he spoke of the weather he had an odd trick of squinting up at the sky with his one eye,阻燃剂📞 the way old sailors often do.
"I sent them to myself,价格🔴" said Gub-Gub,阻燃剂💦 "from Fantippo yesterday. I don't see why you fellows should get all the mail. Nobody writes to me,价格👻 so I write to myself."
As soon as the Doctor had lit his pipe and got it well going he began:"I think I'd like to try a hand at diving myself,阻燃剂👫" said the Doctor,阻燃剂🚑 "if the water is not too deep. I used to be quite good at fishing up sixpences from the bottom of the swimming pool when I was a boy."
"I hope to do a little pearl fishing,价格🌰" said John Dolittle. "But first I must see the spoonbill and give her this registered package. Dab-Dab,价格🚝 would you please try to find her for me? With so many millions of sea birds around,阻燃剂👗 myself,阻燃剂🐐 I wouldn't know how to begin to look for her."
"Cheapside is a London sparrow,阻燃剂🚣" said the Doctor,价格🐃 "who visits me every summer in Puddleby. The rest of the year he lives around St. Paul's Cathedral. He builds his nest in St. Edmund's left ear."
THE ROYAL MAILS OF FANTIPPO
The Doctor span the penny and it came down tails.
"Now,价格😿 it happened that a few days later a neighboring king made war upon the king that owned the country where the pig family lived. Things went very badly for the pigs' king,阻燃剂🌲 and,阻燃剂🚹 seeing that the enemy were close at hand,阻燃剂🌐 he gave orders that all cattle and farm animals and people should be brought inside the castle walls. The pig family was also driven into the castle grounds. But before he left,价格😹 the baby pig went and bit off a piece of his Magic Cucumber and took it along with him.
And the Doctor wrote back:
CHAPTER IV"Yes,阻燃剂👴 Doctor,阻燃剂🐪" Dab-Dab put in,价格💳 "but you wouldn't be bound to buy a second one with the money you would get for the pearls. It would come in real handy for something else,价格🚟 you know."
"Oh,价格✊ I see,阻燃剂🌜" said the Doctor. "Like a medal,阻燃剂🍡 eh?"
While the Doctor was examining them with great curiosity the turtle said:
Then all three men sprang on him with ropes and in a minute his arms and legs were tied and the fight was over.
THE SWIFTEST MAIL IN THE WORLD
"Come along,阻燃剂💻" said Dab-Dab,阻燃剂🐧 picking the wretched culprit up in her big webbed feet. "I'll take you back to the mainland. And you can thank your lucky stars that it's the Doctor who is in charge of this post office. It's to jail you really ought to go."
"All right,阻燃剂🚧" said the Doctor. "I'll mention that.""'Come over here by the trough'"
"It couldn't have,价格🐉" said the thrush. "I put it into a little hollow in the bark of the bough. It just couldn't have slipped or rolled. Somebody must have taken it."
