Next Wednesday,张智🏰 July 18,张智☎ the Red-Winged Plovers will leave this office for Denmark and points on the Skager Rack. Post your mail early,张智😉 please. All letters should bear a four-penny stamp. Small packages will also be carried on this flight for Morocco,张智📛 Portugal and the Channel Islands.
"Oh,张智🐖 quite,张智🈳" said the Doctor,张智🐕 "thank you. But why did you swim under water?""And this is what I heard the farmer say to his wife: 'We'll keep the black and white kitten,张智🍓 Liza. I'll drown the other five to-morrow morning. Won't never do to have all them cats running around the place.' His grammar was atrocious.
"He has gone northward,张智❇" said the Doctor. "But your ship is fast and should be able to overtake him. If he hides in some of these bays and creeks I have several birds here with me who can,张智🌓 as soon as it is light,张智👘 seek him out for us and tell us where he is."
But the black men found the heavy uniforms dreadfully hot for Fantippo weather,张智💴 where they wear only a string of beads. And they left off the uniforms and wore only the caps. That is how the Fantippo postman's uniform came to be a smart cap,张智🌌 a string of beads and a mail bag.
"The gulls dashed themselves into the wheelman's face"
When it was possible to see,张智🌹 however,张智🌇 the Doctor found that most of Chief Nyam-Nyam's people had fled off into the jungle; and the Amazons,张智⭐ in thousands,张智🚫 were just going through the village,张智📲 taking anything they fancied. The Doctor tried to argue with them,张智🍅 but they merely laughed at him.CHAPTER VIII
But,张智🚝 alas! instead of making the number of letters he had to answer less,张智🎥 the Doctor found that by sending out books of information he increased a hundredfold the already enormous mail he had to attend to.
"'Come over here by the trough'"
Then,张智🐃 with Jip's and Dab-Dab's help,张智📉 he constructed a very comfortable basket-work hammock out of willow wands and fastened it between two larger mangroves. Into this he climbed and drew the blanket over him. Although the trees leaned down toward the water with his weight,张智😓 they were quite strong and their bendiness acted like good bed springs.
"I think the white mouse ought to tell us one,张智🚆" said Jip.
But the Doctor didn't answer. And Jip could see from his face that his strength and breath were nearly gone.
As soon as he was dressed and shaved the Doctor went down to his ship and met the Skimmer.After the Doctor had written his first letter by Swallow Mail to the Cats'-Meat-Man he began to think of all the other people to whom he had neglected to write for years and years. And very soon every spare moment he had was filled in writing to friends and acquaintances everywhere.
And,张智👄 taking down his clothes off his own head,张智🎮 the Doctor smartened up his high hat and dressed himself,张智📧 while the strange thing that had saved their lives carried them steadily and firmly toward the mysterious island.
So Dab-Dab went off upon her errand. And in the meantime the Doctor talked and chatted with various sea bird leaders who had already made his acquaintance at the Great Conference in the hollow of No-Man's-Land. These kept coming up to him,张智😚 anxious to show off before their fellows the fact that they knew the great man personally. And once more the Doctor's notebook was kept busy with new discoveries to be jotted down about the carriage of mail by birds that live upon the sea.
By the following morning everything was in readiness to put to sea. The anchor was drawn up and with all sail set the Doctor's ship moved northward before a favorable wind. And it is from this point that my story begins.
"They are very fond of acorns,张智📄" said Speedy.
"We've caught the fellow who stole the pearls,张智🆒 Doctor,张智🏥" said Speedy.
"A Quiffeno-what-us?" asked Jip.
The educational side of the Doctor's post office was a very important one and it grew all the time. As he had said to the Skimmer at the beginning,张智🏆 as soon as the birds and animals realized the helpfulness of having a post office of their own they used it more and more.
