"Ah,侯集🎊 England!" cried Gub-Gub sentimentally. "What is there more beautiful in life than the heart of a young lettuce in the Spring?"
"'Oh,中学❄ I think this is an awful place!'"
"I don't like that,中学🍁" said the King,招生简章🐰 frowning.
With shrieks and howls the fat women soldiers dropped the things they had been stealing and ran helter-skelter for home. And that was one time the famous Amazons of Dahomey didn't have it all their own way.
"But I don't understand,2022🏯" said John Dolittle. "I thought Wilkins had made off with them."
Disappointed and sad,2022👍 Dab-Dab and the Doctor started to paddle their way back.
"Ah,招生简章♒" said the gull,招生简章☠ "for land weather I wouldn't be much help to you. But when it comes to the oceans,侯集🐔 I know a bird who can tell you more about sea weather than any bureau ever knew."Then the Doctor and the leaders agreed upon a regular kind of simple,中学㊗ easy writing for all birds to use,2022🔴 so that the addresses on the envelopes could be understood and read by the post birds. And at last John Dolittle sent them off home again,招生简章🎻 to instruct their relatives in this new writing and reading and explain to all the birds of all the world how the post office was going to work and how much good he hoped it would do for the education and betterment of the Animal Kingdom. Then he went home and had a good sleep.
A good strong canoe had by this time been put at the Doctor's service by the King,侯集🏢 who was also having the post office houseboat built at the Doctor's orders.
"Well,中学👖" said Gub-Gub,实验🚢 "I was thinking of sending to England for some fresh vegetables."
Some weeks later the Doctor received this letter from a farmer in Lincolnshire:
"Aye,2022🐸 aye,2022⚡ sir,招生简章🈲" said the master-at-arms. And before the Doctor knew it he had handcuffs fastened firmly on his wrists.
Next Wednesday,招生简章🎿 July 18,侯集💭 the Red-Winged Plovers will leave this office for Denmark and points on the Skager Rack. Post your mail early,2022📆 please. All letters should bear a four-penny stamp. Small packages will also be carried on this flight for Morocco,2022🌙 Portugal and the Channel Islands.
"How extraordinary!" said John Dolittle,中学🌂 entirely bewildered. "What ails the man?""Quip,招生简章🎉" said Speedy,侯集🐂 "take this letter to the Azores as fast as you can. There you'll just catch the White Tailed Carolina Warblers about to make their summer crossing to the United States. Give it to them and tell them to get the answer back here,招生简章😆 as quick as they know how."
John Dolittle was inclined to blame himself for having asked him to go hunting in the lake for souvenirs the night before.
But after many hours of fruitless search night began to come on and the swallows who were acting as guides could no longer see big distances,侯集🛅 for there was no moon.
Now,实验👚 the Doctor really had not got everything ready yet to work the foreign mails properly and he was about to explain to the King. But Speedy hopped up on the desk and whispered:
"Yes,招生简章📛 yes,侯集🐈" said the Doctor. "Go on. I remember Columbus writing of land birds in his diary. Go on."They found an air of quiet but great excitement there. Each gunner was leaning on his gun,中学😕 aiming it,招生简章🐕 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.
The turtle drank it down. And in a minute or two he said he felt much better and could now move his legs freely without pain.
