"Ah,摩尔🚔 England!" cried Gub-Gub sentimentally. "What is there more beautiful in life than the heart of a young lettuce in the Spring?"
"'Look! Look what you've done to me now!' I cried. 'It isn't even a navy blue. You've made me just hideous!'
"My memory doesn't work very well while my hands are tied,电影🛁" said the Doctor quietly,庄园🌹 nodding toward the handcuffs. "Possibly if you took these things off I might remember."
"The gull caught the tomato skin with a lightning lunge"
"They're such a nice,电影🐣 wholesome,庄园💂 Christian change,摩尔😛" he said,宝藏📅 "after these 'ere 'eathen hidolaters. And you should just hear Fred sing 'See That My Grave's Kept Green.'""Dab-Dab! Dab-Dab! I can't light it. We forgot to bring matches!"
"Oh,庄园🌼 and by the way,百度🐒" the Captain called after him,电影🦋 "bring a chair up on deck. Perhaps our visitor is tired."
"Well,宝藏🔥 just wait until I have your hands free,摩尔🌀" said the white mouse. "Then I'll see what can be done. There! I've bitten through one strand. Now wiggle your hands a bit and you can undo the whole rope."
"They're such a nice,电影🚥 wholesome,庄园💜 Christian change,庄园💳" he said,庄园🙇 "after these 'ere 'eathen hidolaters. And you should just hear Fred sing 'See That My Grave's Kept Green.'"
With trembling fingers the Doctor lit the candle. Then,宝藏🔲 shielding the flame with his hand,摩尔🌑 he bounded out of the room and up the stairs.
The next day,电影🐠 as soon as it was light,宝藏🎐 the warship went cruising down the coast again,电影🙈 putting the black people ashore in their own particular countries.
Then all three men sprang on him with ropes and in a minute his arms and legs were tied and the fight was over.
"I know,庄园📈" said Speedy. "And if we could we would have nested right here in this country to oblige you,摩尔🍑 and not bothered about going to England this year. It wouldn't have mattered terribly much to miss one summer in the North. But,摩尔🚔 you see,摩尔🌺 we swallows can't nest very well in trees. We like houses and barns and buildings to nest in."
In a moment he was clattering down the stairs.
"Well,百度🚂 you could have knocked me down with a feather. Of course,庄园♉ you must realize that was the first time I had ever heard of any one's being afraid of the dark. It sounds ridiculous enough to all of you,电影🈸 I suppose,宝藏📲 but to me,宝藏🌱 who had always preferred the cool,宝藏👀 calm darkness to the glaring,宝藏😵 vulgar daylight,庄园😬 it seemed then an almost unbelievable thing that anyone could be afraid merely because the sun had gone to bed.
"Confound the luck!" muttered John Dolittle.However,庄园🐁 the crafty Bones,宝藏👄 with so big a start,摩尔📼 was not easy to overtake. And soon the sun began to set and the Captain frowned and stamped his feet. For with darkness he knew his enemy would be safe.
"What do you want?" he asked,宝藏🌉 thrusting the pearls into his pocket.
And going to the door,百度🈷 he called in the bird who had carried the registered package.
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."Here,电影🔶 drink this,摩尔📕" the Doctor ordered,百度🌷 handing him a tea-cup full of some brown mixture. "I think you will find that that will soon relieve the stiffness in your front legs."
"'You're in the soup,电影🐵' said the little men.
So then the King,摩尔🍸 who was a persevering man,庄园📎 said that Fantippo should have its post office,电影🅾 anyway. And he sent to England for hundreds of postmen's uniforms and caps. And when these arrived he dressed a lot of black men up in them and set them to work as postmen.
"It changed my appearance completely. Moving through the long grass,百度🍯 I looked like some ordinary kind of deer. So,宝藏🍚 disguised in this manner,宝藏📯 I sauntered out into an open meadow and grazed around till my precious Badamoshis should appear. Which they very shortly did.
"Villain!" was all he said between his clenched teeth.
