And in this war the King of Fantippo had taken many prisoners,岗位职责🌒 among whom was the woman's husband. Shortly after the war was over some white men in a ship had called at the Kingdom of Fantippo to see if they could buy slaves for tobacco plantations. And when the king heard how much money they were willing to give for black slaves he thought he would sell them the prisoners he had taken in the war.
"They're not your pearl fisheries,电气🎦 you black-faced ruffian,岗位职责🔊" said the Doctor. "You stole them from poor old Nyam-Nyam. The pearls were fished for by diving birds. But the birds are honest and will work only for honest people. Why don't you have windows in your prisons? You ought to be ashamed of yourself."
"I'll take the pearls myself this time,电气😾" he said to Speedy,工程师🎌 "and hand them over to the spoonbill in person. We don't want any more accidents happening to them."
"Well,工程师🔔 you should have seen the excitement among the people then! The owner of the watch and chain was there and he raised a terrible row. And then it came out that these dogs had been taking things from their masters' homes to hire bones with. The people were dreadfully annoyed. They closed up our bone shop and put us out of business. But they never discovered that the money we had made had gone to the beggar.
"Don't bother,岗位职责🐾 Doctor. He would never believe you,工程师🚒 anyway. It was the gun of the man that made the mistake before that we used. Let him take the credit. They'll likely give him a medal,电气✏ and then he'll feel better."
The Doctor,电气🎑 on hearing this,工程师🏢 felt glad that he had already got the pink pearls safely off to their owner by registered mail. Then he told the King that he hoped shortly to take a holiday because he was overworked and needed a rest. The King asked where he was going,工程师📉 and the Doctor said he thought of taking a week's canoe trip up the coast toward the Harmattan Rocks.
