Outside the post office he had a notice board set up on which were posted the Outgoing and Incoming Mails. The notices would read something like this:
At last,杨雨🗽 while it was still just light enough to see,杨雨🐇 the snake swung into the left and once more entered the outskirts of the mangrove swamps. Following him with difficulty in the fading light,杨雨🗼 the Doctor was led into a deep glady cove. At the end of this the nose of the canoe suddenly bumped into something hard. The Doctor was about to lean out to see what it was when a deep,杨雨🐈 deep bass voice spoke out of the gloom quite close to him.
Then the Captain,杨雨📤 who a moment before was all for punishing the man who had fired without orders,拒绝🎮 wanted to know who it was that aimed that marvelous shot which brought the slaver to a standstill. And the Doctor was going to tell him it was Speedy. But the Skimmer whispered in his ear:
And soon money began to pour into the country from the pearl fishing business which the Doctor had established and the people were prosperous and had all the food they wanted.
"Yes,百里挑一🔥" said Cheapside. "There's always something doing in good old London. They've got a new kind of cab that goes on two wheels instead of four. A man called 'Ansom invented it. Much faster than the old 'ackneys they are. You see 'em everywhere. And there's a new greengrocer's shop near the Royal Exchange."
"Mind,百里挑一🚱 you wash the soap out first,杨雨💷 Doc,杨雨🍼" chirped the Sparrow,拒绝🍀 "it gets into my eyes."
"I too am glad,拒绝💿 John Dolittle. You are the only one in the world now who understands the speech of animals. And if you had not come my story of the Flood could not have been told. I'm getting very old and do not ever move far away from Junganyika."
"Why did you do it?" he repeated.
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,杨雨👛 watching them. They waved to him and pushed on.
"But these oyster beds don't belong to me,百里挑一🐇" said John Dolittle."Not very many,拒绝🚲" said the snake. "He lives on the edge of the lake a few miles to the North. Let us hurry and try to reach his home before darkness falls."
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,百里挑一🚮 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.
"Well,百里挑一🌱" said the Doctor,拒绝⌛ settling himself back in his chair,拒绝🐎 "I think I'll call this story 'The Invalids' Strike.'"
"Pearls? What do you mean?" said the bird.
"He found his mother and father still asleep when he got back. So after carefully hiding his Magic Cucumber under the floor of the cow barn,拒绝📠 he crept into the sty and went fast asleep.
Then John Dolittle and Jip were taken by the Piffilosaurus all over the island of No-Man's-Land."I'll show you very shortly,杨雨🐦" said John Dolittle. And he called Cheapside to him.
"I know,拒绝♻" said Speedy. "And if we could we would have nested right here in this country to oblige you,杨雨🏡 and not bothered about going to England this year. It wouldn't have mattered terribly much to miss one summer in the North. But,百里挑一✳ you see,拒绝🚒 we swallows can't nest very well in trees. We like houses and barns and buildings to nest in."
"Oh,百里挑一🏮 how splendid!" cried the Doctor.
"You,杨雨♉ Doctor,杨雨🌲" said the deep voice of the piffilosaurus at his elbow,百里挑一😏 "are the first human in a thousand years that has set foot here. The last one was King Kakaboochi's mother-in-law."
"And me,拒绝🚎 too,拒绝🎌" sighed Jip. "Were there many rats in the woodshed,杨雨💜 Cheapside?"
With a howl Wilkins bent down to knock her off.
"The King saw the Doctor's canoe arriving"
"'Where have you been?'"
