The old Chief sank into his chair as he ended and burst out weeping. The Doctor went up and patted him on the shoulder.
"Marvelous!" cried the Doctor. "How do you do it?"
"'George Morland!' I cried. 'Is he in these parts now?'
Then came a cry from the look-out,手机🔥 shouted orders from the captain,手机🚤 much blowing of whistles and ringing of bells. And just in time to save herself from a watery grave,怎么🙆 the big ship swung her nose out to sea and sailed safely past upon her way."What is the fastest foreign mail delivery ever made by any post office anywhere in the world?"
"What's a sanitarium?" asked Gub-Gub.
So the Emir ordered his hammock men and had himself carried to the Doctor's prison. The door was unlocked and the Emir,手机🈁 going inside,手机🚀 said to the Doctor:
"Thank goodness,手机ℹ I had you in my pocket!" he said. "That was a most uncomfortable position. I wonder what kind of a prison old Nyam-Nyam got. This is the worst one I was ever in."
The Doctor told his pet he could be very proud of himself. For he was surely the only mouse in the world that ever won a war.
The Doctor found that His Majesty was much more distressed at the prospect of losing his good white friend and his afternoon tea on the houseboat than at anything else which the change would bring. But he saw that the Doctor really felt he had to go; and at length,手机🏀 with tears falling into his tea-cup,手机♎ he gave permission for the Postmaster General of Fantippo to resign.
"Its head is under water,手机🏊" said the Doctor. "But there's its tail,木乃伊😝 look,手机🔭 behind us."
King Koko got to hear of this and he called up one of these stamp collectors and asked him why men should offer high prices for one old used stamp. And the white man explained to him this new craze for stamp collecting that was sweeping over the civilized world.
It was a great day at the Doctor's post office when Cheapside,公主🔷 the London sparrow,公主👟 arrived from Puddleby to look after the city deliveries for Fantippo.
"There goes the Dolittle fortune. My,怎么🍪 but it is marvelous how money doesn't stick to that man's fingers!"
Now the cormorants did not know that war had broken out,公主👖 nor anything about the Doctor's misfortune. And when the Emir's men came and took the pearl oysters they had fished up the birds supposed they were Nyam-Nyam's men and let them have them. However,手机🌟 it happened,公主🍖 luckily,怎么🙇 that this first load of oysters had only very small and almost worthless pearls in them.
The Doctor threw a tomato skin out of the canoe and the gull caught it neatly in the air before it touched the water."The gull took a fresh piece of toast"
Now,木乃伊🌙 one day,公主🙋 very early in the morning,怎么🏨 when the Doctor was lying in bed,怎么🍣 wondering what he could do about the Foreign Mail Service,怎么🚅 Dab-Dab and Jip brought him in his breakfast on a tray and told him there was a swallow outside who wanted to give him a message from Speedy-the-Skimmer. John Dolittle had the swallow brought in and the little bird sat on the foot of his bed while he ate his breakfast.
"Well,木乃伊🔺 you see,手机👔" said John Dolittle,木乃伊🍄 "I think we might,怎么🍎 because we could use the mail service for the birds themselves,公主😿 and the animals,公主🐂 too,木乃伊👒 to send their letters by,木乃伊📓 as well as the Fantippans."
"I should say he did,公主🐬" growled Mudface. "But that belongs to the story of the Flood. You have come far. You must be weary and in need of food."
