By the end of that week the Doctor had,花见🚀 indeed,粤语🎪 made good his promise. The country of Chief Nyam-Nyam became famous all along the coast of West Africa as a wealthy state.
"Well,粤语✒" said the Doctor,花见📥 "I'll tell it,粤语🍎 and then you can decide for yourself. Stop fidgeting,鱼跃⁉ now,花见💳 and let me begin. It's getting late."
But suddenly out of the black stillness came a small,粤语🚒 sweet voice,花见🏨 singing,鱼跃🍜 somewhere near.
Standing on the top of the hill with Jip and the piffilosaurus at his side,粤语💿 the Doctor gazed down over the wide bowl full of contented animal life and heaved a sigh.CHAPTER VII
"Don't worry,花见⌚ Doctor,粤语🔸 I'll get it to her,花见🗼" said the mouse. "I've just found an old rat hole over here in the corner. I popped down it and it goes under the wall and comes out by the root of the tree on the other side of the road from the prison."
"Oh,粤语🎌 and by the way,鱼跃➰" the Captain called after him,粤语🎓 "bring a chair up on deck. Perhaps our visitor is tired."
Later in the afternoon the gull returned and with him came the great One Eye,粤语💴 oldest of bird weather prophets.
Soon hisses and groans broke out among the crowd and,鱼跃🍲 picking up pebbles and mud,鱼跃💴 they began pelting Obombo so he could not go on with his speech. Finally he had to run for the jungle himself to escape the fury of the people.
On arriving back at the houseboat from his short and very busy holiday the Doctor was greeted joyfully by the pushmi-pullyu,粤语🚒 Too-Too,鱼跃® Cheapside and Speedy the Skimmer. King Koko also came out to greet his friend when he saw the arrival of the Doctor's canoe through a pair of opera glasses (price ten shillings and sixpence) which he had recently got from London by parcel post. And the prominent Fantippans,鱼跃🍠 who had missed their afternoon tea and social gossip terribly during the Postmaster's absence,鱼跃📝 got into their canoes and followed the King out to the Foreign Mails Office.
"Splendid,粤语📺 Quip,粤语📍" said the Doctor. "I congratulate you. Now I must be getting up. I've a frightful lot of work to do. Don't forget to tell Speedy I'll meet him on the ship at ten. Good-bye! Oh,粤语🔍 and would you mind asking Dab-Dab,粤语🈁 as you go out,粤语⭕ to clear away the breakfast things? I'm glad you came. You've given me an idea. Good-bye!"
Well,粤语🐫 when four days had passed the Emir of Ellebubu sent a messenger to the prison to inquire if the Doctor was now willing to do as he was told. The guards after talking to John Dolittle brought word to the Emir that the white man was as obstinate as ever and had no intention of giving in."We are really on the shores of it already,花见😆 then?"
"Good morning,粤语🍜 Your Majesty,花见👮" said the Doctor. "Do you happen to know what kind of animal this bone belongs to?"
"Doctor,粤语🏭" he cried,粤语🆙 "the mail has been robbed! The thrush has come back to the post office and says his package was taken from him on the way. The pearls are gone!"
But when the sparrow went all his London friends went with him and the post office was left with no city birds to attend to the city deliveries. The swallows and other birds tried their hardest to get letters around to the houses properly. But they couldn't. And before long complaints began to come in from the townspeople."That's a little idea of my own,鱼跃🚷" said the Sparrow. "We'll 'ave one box for the bills and one for sure-enough letters. You see,花见🔠 people are so disappointed when they 'ear the postman's knock and come to the door,花见ℹ expecting to find a nice letter from a friend or news that money's been left them and all they get is a bill from the tailor. But if we have two boxes on each door,粤语👨 one marked 'Bills,粤语📹' and the other 'Letters,鱼跃👛' the postman can put all the bills in one box and the honest letters in the other. As I said,花见🔒 it's a little idea of my own. We might as well be real up-to-date. What do you think of it?"
"Oh,花见➕ you've heard all my stories,花见😊" said the Doctor. "Why don't you play Hunt-the-Slipper?"
"Cheapside,粤语📱 the London sparrow"At last John Dolittle,鱼跃🏯 who for his size,花见🍏 was a very powerful wrestler,粤语🚶 got the pearl fisherman in a grip of iron where he couldn't move at all. But just as the Doctor was forcing the pistol out of his enemy's hand,鱼跃📖 one of the other men,花见🔌 who had been aroused by the noise of the fight,花见🐉 woke up. And,花见🌙 leaning out of his bunk from behind the Doctor's back,粤语🍐 he hit him a tremendous blow on the head with a bottle. Stunned and senseless,粤语🌼 John Dolittle fell over in a heap and lay still upon the floor.
"Then the baby pig saw that the time to use the goblins' magic gift had come. And,粤语🚡 rushing out into the castle garden,花见📊 he dug a hole and planted his piece of cucumber right in the middle of the king's best rosebed.
