So Dab-Dab flew away over the sea and John Dolittle continued to paddle his canoe bravely forward.
"Build windows in the prison at once,左看向🗿" the Emir said to the guards.
"Everything all right now,明月❤ Doctor?" he asked as he swept in graceful circles around the canoe.
"'Ugh!' says the little girl,明月🍇 clutching her brother around the neck. 'What was that,明月💾 a spook?'
"'Why,左看向😴 it's Jip!' he cried. 'Good dog. Come here. You're the very fellow I want.'
"Well,左看向😗 you see,左看向🌿" said John Dolittle,明月📙 "I think we might,明月♍ because we could use the mail service for the birds themselves,左看向🚖 and the animals,明月🌲 too,明月🍮 to send their letters by,明月🆓 as well as the Fantippans."
TEACHING BY MAIL
Then the Skimmer,明月📫 with one of his claws,左看向🍆 began tracing out some letters on the Doctor's palm. Before he had got very far John Dolittle sprang up,明月💦 nearly overturning the canoe.
The first hard work of getting the post office in full swing was now over. And that night John Dolittle felt when he heard the doors being shut that at last he could afford to keep more regular hours and not be working all the time. And when Jip came inside the Registered Mail booth he found the Doctor leaning back in a chair with his feet on the desk,左看向🅾 gazing around him with great satisfaction.
The Doctor comforted her as best he could,左看向💇 saying that if he failed he would get her another husband,明月💰 just as good. But she didn't seem to care for that idea and went on wailing,左看向🏠 "Alas! Alas!"
"Ask them to let me fire a gun. My sight is better than theirs for bad light."
Then the Doctor and Zuzana started to paddle their canoe for all they were worth in the direction of the light. The night was calm,明月👰 but the long swell of the ocean swung the little canoe up and down like a seesaw and it needed all Zuzana's skill to keep it in a straight line.
"'I've tried,左看向🙊' I said. 'But they're so scared they won't follow me. They don't like my voice or something. They take me for a wicked ogre,明月🐪 and all that sort of rot.'
"The young ones were with her"
"Is it a good story?" asked Gub-Gub.
"What chance have we of that?" shouted Dab-Dab. "It's as black as black down here. And the ship is coming nearer every minute."
The Doctor span the penny and it came down tails.
"How does the garden look,明月💾 Cheapside?" asked the Doctor."All right,左看向🔫" said the Doctor,明月📅 "I'll call on him with your compliments."
"Good luck!" cried John Dolittle. "You're the very fellow I want. Would you be so good as to run around behind my back and gnaw this beastly rope? It's hurting my wrists."
