When Speedy came to the hummock and said,宠物😲 "Doctor,可爱🎺 it is finished,连连看🏂" Mudface gazed thoughtfully out into the lake and murmured:
After the Doctor had written his first letter by Swallow Mail to the Cats'-Meat-Man he began to think of all the other people to whom he had neglected to write for years and years. And very soon every spare moment he had was filled in writing to friends and acquaintances everywhere.

"Yes,可爱📠" said Zuzana. "But I don't think he ever got it. Because no answer came."
"'Willie,小游戏🍱 we're lost! Whatever shall we do? Night is coming on and I'm so afraid of the dark.'
"Yes,小游戏😒" 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."
"As he took a seat beside me on the doorstep I burst into tears and told him all that had happened to me since we left our parents' home.
"I'll show you very shortly,连连看🦉" said John Dolittle. And he called Cheapside to him.
"But we never thought where the dogs might be getting all these things they brought us. The truth is,连连看👑 we didn't bother very much,连连看🏬 I'm afraid. Anyway at the end of our first week of brisk trade we noticed a great many people going through the streets as though they were looking for something. And presently these people,4399📏 seeing our shop in the empty lot,可爱😢 gathered around us,可爱📏 talking to one another. And while they were talking a retriever came up to me with a gold watch and chain in his mouth,可爱💐 which he wanted to exchange for a ham bone."They did,可爱💨" said the Piffilosaurus. "But they kept hidden under the water,小游戏🎲 lest the natives on the shore should see and get to know that the old story about the dragon's mother-in-law wasn't true. While I was bringing you here they were swimming all around you under the water,可爱🍞 ready to help if I needed them. They have gone around to the secret cove so they may come ashore unseen. We had better be going on ourselves now. Whatever happens,可爱🚽 we mustn't be seen from the shore and have the natives coming here. It would be the end of us if that should ever happen,小游戏👓 because,连连看🐒 between ourselves,连连看🐠 although they think us so terrible,小游戏🐽 we are really more harmless than sheep."
"'Look here,连连看🐠' he said to the beggar. 'Would you like me to re-draw all your pictures for you? Of course,连连看📌 those done on the pavement you couldn't sell,宠物▪ but we can rub them out. And I've got some spare canvases in my satchel here. Maybe you could sell a few. I can sell pictures in London any day in the week. But I've never been a pavement artist before. It would be rather a lark to see what happens.'
"Oh,4399🈳 yes,小游戏🌆" said the gull,连连看🌚 "it wastes a little time. But,连连看🌔 you know,可爱🍓 we very seldom let ourselves get caught by a storm."
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,4399🍡 watching them. They waved to him and pushed on.
Finding a rope ladder hanging on the side of the man-o'-war,宠物🍏 John Dolittle climbed up it,连连看⬜ with Zuzana,小游戏🚁 and went aboard to see the Captain.
So the gull,宠物🐥 after thanking the Doctor and Dab-Dab for a very excellent luncheon,连连看💳 took a couple of postcards which were going to Angola and flew off to get One Eye,4399🍆 the albatross."'You're in the soup,4399💃' said the little men.
And,可爱🐚 taking down his clothes off his own head,连连看⁉ the Doctor smartened up his high hat and dressed himself,小游戏🍙 while the strange thing that had saved their lives carried them steadily and firmly toward the mysterious island.
"About a turnip field,可爱🦋" said Gub-Gub.After twenty minutes had gone by John Dolittle began to get worried,宠物🐶 because the Skimmer,连连看📤 with his tremendous speed,可爱🚗 should have had time to get there and back long ago.
"The baby spoonbills want them,4399🔪" said John Dolittle. "Why should I take them away from them?"
