Then the Doctor asked Speedy to send off messages through the birds to every corner of the earth. And to ask all the leaders of seagulls,精油🎏 tomtits,精油🎎 magpies,精油👮 thrushes,香橙🔋 stormy petrels,精油🍟 finches,香橙🚐 penguins,香橙💈 vultures,精油😁 snow buntings,香橙👘 wild geese and the rest to come to No-Man's-Land,香橙🏭 because John Dolittle wanted to speak to them.
"'Ark at 'im,精油🍆" said Cheapside,精油🔤 raising his eyebrows. "Ain't 'e the poetical porker? Why don't you write a bunch of sonnets to the Skunk-Kissed-Cabbages of Louisiana,精油📏 Mr. Bacon?"
Out in the open great banks of gray mist rolled and joined and separated as the wailing wind pushed them fretfully hither and thither over the face of the waters.
And in the jungle,香橙💺 where the frightened villagers had fled to hide,香橙📷 Obombo made whispered speeches to little scattered groups of his father-in-law's people,香橙🦉 telling them what fools they had been to trust the crazy white man,香橙🐚 instead of listening to him,香橙😥 who would have led them to greatness.But,精油😛 being a full-rigged man-o'-war,精油👖 the Violet was still a pretty speedy sailer. And on she went,精油🚗 furiously plowing the waves and slowly gaining on the slave ship.
"Oh,精油⛪ no,精油🙎" said the beast. "The Quiffenodochus has gone long ago. We are the Piffilosaurus. We have six toes on the back feet,香橙🕊 while the Quiffenodochi,香橙🛂 our cousins,精油📼 have only five. They died out about two thousand years ago."
"Oh,香橙🙇 and hurry back,精油🌘 Dab-Dab,精油🍙" the Doctor called after her as she flapped her way through the open window and set off across the sea with her burden. "I'm going to start right away for Chief Nyam-Nyam's country as soon as you are ready."'Well,香橙🎻 it was some cat,香橙🌋' says the boy. 'He must be right around here somewhere,精油👟 because he led us almost up to the door.'
"The new leader immediately got scared and gave the order for the Jays to swing in further toward the land,精油😺 so they wouldn't be seen by the men who crowded these large boats. He was a superstitious leader and anything he didn't understand he kept away from. But my ancestor did not go with the flock,精油🔞 but made straight for the ships.
THE DOCTOR'S STORY
The Doctor was eating his lunch of sandwiches at the information desk when the little bird popped his head through the window and said in his cheeky Cockney voice:Bigger and bigger grew the home-made land and soon Mudface's new estate was acres wide. Still another order from Speedy; and presently the rattling noise changed to a gentle hiss. The sky now was simply black with birds; the pebble-shower had ceased; it was raining sand. Last of all,精油🌴 the birds brought seeds: grass seeds,精油⚽ the seeds of flowers,香橙🏠 acorns and the kernels of palms. The turtle's new home was to be provided with turf,精油🍂 with wild gardens,精油🐢 with shady avenues to keep off the African sun.
Nearly all of the history of Doctor Dolittle's post office took place when he was returning from a voyage to West Africa. Therefore I will begin (as soon as I have told you a little about how he came to take the journey) from where he turned his ship towards home again and set sail for Puddleby-on-the-Marsh.
