"Do you feel all right now?"
The next thing I must tell you about is the Prize Story Competition: The fame of the Puddleby fireside-circle,黄海⚪ where the Doctor had amused his pets with so many interesting tales,事件📌 had become quite a famous institution. Too-Too had gossiped about it; Gub-Gub,对峙📟 Jip and the white mouse had boasted of it. (You see,黄海❣ they were always proud that they could say they were part of the great man's regular household.) And before long,中美🍠 through this new post office of their own,对峙🏮 creatures all over the world were speaking of it and discussing it by letter. Next thing,中美😭 the Doctor began to receive requests for stories by mail. He had become equally famous as an animal doctor,电影◻ an animal educator and an animal author.
"If this is an army of women,对峙👥 Doctor,电影🌱 I think I know of a way to deal with them. Women are terribly afraid of mice,黄海🐕 you know. I'll just go off and collect a few in the village and see what we can do."
Then the Doctor drew back for a run and threw his whole weight against the door. But the hinges and lock had been made to stand the beating of the sea and they budged no more than if he had been a fly.But just at that moment the order came from the Captain,事件😁 "Cease firing!" And the men left their places.
And in spite of the lateness of the hour,黄海🚑 John Dolittle said a hasty farewell to Chief Nyam-Nyam and started off by moonlight for Fantippo Harbor.
"After some months I began to grow weary of the silly life I was leading. And then,事件🍍 too,事件🚟 the wild mice were so mean to me. They used to come around at night and point at me through the wire of my cage,事件🍸 saying:
"And that is why to this day that farmer and his wife swear their cat can understand English,黄海🍣 because,黄海⛳ they say,中美🌛 she must have heard them when they were talking over the basket. And whenever she's in the room and they are gossiping about the neighbors,电影🎸 they always speak in whispers,事件🌔 lest she overhear. But between you and me,电影🔢 she doesn't really understand a single word they say."
"At last!" he muttered. "Let's hope I'm not too late!"
In the meantime,电影🍱 Speedy and the thrush flew over the land by the short cut to the post office.
"What's all this about?" asked the Doctor.
