"Thank you,高铁👬" said the gull. "I am feeling kind of peckish myself. You are very kind. This is the first time I've eaten ship's food inside a ship."
And now very soon Cheapside took entire charge of the city delivery of mails in Fantippo. Of course,哈尔滨😿 as soon as the mail began to get heavy,鹤岗😋 when the people got the habit of writing more to their friends and relatives,高铁🌀 Cheapside could not deal with all the mail himself. So he sent a message by a swallow to get fifty sparrows from the streets of London (who were,佳木斯😧 like himself,鹤岗🦢 accustomed to city ways),时刻表🏠 to help him with the delivery of letters. And around the native holiday seasons,火车🚗 the Harvest Moon and the Coming of the Rains,高铁🗽 he had to send for fifty more to deal with the extra mail.
Then the Emir was puzzled and angry. If Nyam-Nyam could get pearls on the Harmattan Rocks,鹤岗💒 why couldn't he? And one of his generals said that probably the white man had something to do with it,查询😿 since it was he who had discovered and started the fisheries.
Now his pets,查询🌜 after the post office work got sort of settled and regular,时刻表🗼 often found it somewhat hard to amuse themselves in the evenings. One night they were all sitting around on the veranda of the houseboat wondering what game they could play when Jip suddenly said:
So the Doctor's letter was written and addressed to Matthew Mugg,查询💽 Esquire,查询🌀 Cats' Meat Merchant,鹤岗🔌 Puddleby-on-the-Marsh,哈尔滨🎊 Slopshire,佳木斯🚳 England. And it was sent off by Quip-the-Carrier.
"'Bones for hire! Beef bones,时刻表💬 ham bones,佳木斯📘 mutton bones,火车🍃 chicken bones! All juicy! Step up,时刻表🏦 gentlemen,查询🔢 and take your choice! BONES for hire!'
As they went forward the jungle around them seemed to grow thicker and thicker all the time. But there was always this clear alley-way along the river bed. And though the stream's course did much winding and twisting,哈尔滨😃 the going was good.
While he was doing this,高铁🔶 however,时刻表😔 Dab-Dab sneaked in under the table,佳木斯㊗ unseen by anyone. And suddenly she bit the pearl fisherman in the leg with her powerful beak.
By the end of that week the Doctor had,查询◼ indeed,鹤岗🎒 made good his promise. The country of Chief Nyam-Nyam became famous all along the coast of West Africa as a wealthy state.
They found an air of quiet but great excitement there. Each gunner was leaning on his gun,高铁🐇 aiming it,高铁🐫 watching the enemy's ship in the distance and waiting for the order to fire. The poor man who had been mobbed by his fellows was still almost in tears at his own stupid mistake.
"Doctor,哈尔滨📓 why don't you start a parcel post?"
"Jip hung up the sign"
"'Look at the tame white mouse! Tee-hee-hee! A plaything for children! Good little mousey! Come and have 'ims facey washed!' The stupid little idiots!
"'My master has been ordered to paint the portrait of a prince,鹤岗🦆' he said,哈尔滨🅿 putting on no end of elegance.
"Then I led him into the town. On the way there every once in a while he would say to himself: 'I wonder what can be the matter. Something's wrong,高铁🌿 that's sure,佳木斯🚇 or the dog wouldn't carry on so.'
"The white mouse would roll them down the hole"
"'How ever did you find your way,哈尔滨〽 Willie?' asked the mother,佳木斯🍂 wiping away her tears and smiling all over.With a howl Wilkins bent down to knock her off.
"What was here before the Flood then?" asked the Doctor.
"No,时刻表😗" said the Doctor. "It's only about noon,鹤岗🍃 I should say. But we're locked up. That stupid old Emir of Ellebubu made war on Nyam-Nyam and threw me into jail. Bother it,时刻表🚕 I always seem to be getting into prison! The worst of it was,鹤岗🔮 he wouldn't let Jip or Dab-Dab come with me. I'm particularly annoyed that I haven't got Dab-Dab. I wish I knew some way I could get a message to her."
But just at that moment the order came from the Captain,鹤岗🏦 "Cease firing!" And the men left their places.
They asked the Doctor if he could give them any news of their beloved London. But he had to admit that he also had been away from that city for a long time. However,查询🍨 while they were talking Cheapside came into the lighthouse kitchen,查询🎒 looking for the Doctor. The city sparrow was delighted to find that the keepers were also Cockneys. And he gave them,哈尔滨📑 through the Doctor,火车🌔 all the latest gossip of Wapping,哈尔滨🚻 Limehouse,哈尔滨🍖 the East India Docks and the wharves and the shipping of London River.
