"They are pearls,什么🔐" said the Doctor,霍思燕✒ "and worth a tremendous lot. Ladies in cities wear them around their necks."
"Cheapside is a London sparrow,霍思燕🌖" said the Doctor,霍思燕💘 "who visits me every summer in Puddleby. The rest of the year he lives around St. Paul's Cathedral. He builds his nest in St. Edmund's left ear."
Then the Emir flew into a terrible passion.
"You sound clean crazy to me,什么📕 my good man. But if you can put me in the way of capturing Jimmie Bones the slaver I don't care what means you use to do it. As soon as the day breaks we will get under way. But if you are just amusing yourself at the expense of Her Majesty's Navy I warn you it will be the worst day's work for yourself you ever did. Now go and put riding lights on that ark of yours and tell the pig that if he lets them go out he shall be made into rashers of bacon for the officers' mess."
"The British post office is now boasting,什么🎏" said the Doctor,什么🔰 "that it can get a letter from London to Canada in fourteen days."
Then John Dolittle started turning his trousers pockets out onto the table to try and find something that reminded him of a story. It was certainly a wonderful collection of objects that he brought forth. There were pieces of string and pieces of wire,霍思燕🏯 stub ends of pencils,霍思燕🌹 pocket-knives with the blades broken,什么📘 coat buttons,什么🐽 boot buttons,什么🐁 a magnifying glass,什么🚕 a compass and a corkscrew.
Outside the post office he had a notice board set up on which were posted the Outgoing and Incoming Mails. The notices would read something like this:
"'Willie,霍思燕👮 we're lost! Whatever shall we do? Night is coming on and I'm so afraid of the dark.'
"'Who is your master?' I said. 'Anybody would think you were going to paint the portrait yourself.'Well,什么👈 everyone in turn,霍思燕☠ the pushmi-pullyu,霍思燕🎑 Cheapside,霍思燕🚁 Too-Too,霍思燕🔏 Quip-the-Carrier,霍思燕🚗 all the swallows,霍思燕🚓 any stray birds who were living in the neighborhood,霍思燕🙇 even a pair of rats who had taken up their residence in the houseboat,霍思燕🌐 were cross-examined by the Doctor or Speedy.
