This made the kingdom of Fantippo much richer and more important than it had been before,论坛📥 of course. And a large grant of money was given by the King to the Foreign Mails post office,太平洋💖 which was used by the Doctor in making the houseboat better and bigger.
During the course of the next day's travel the country became,论坛🌹 as the snake had foretold,太平洋💽 freer and more open. Little by little the islands grew fewer and the mangroves not so tangly. In the dreary views there was less land and more water. The going was much easier now. For miles at a stretch the Doctor could paddle,汽车模型📶 without the help of his guide,太平洋🌿 in water that seemed to be quite deep. It was indeed a change to be able to look up and see a clear sky overhead once in a while,汽车模型💗 instead of that everlasting network of swamp trees. Across the heavens the travelers now occasionally saw flights of wild ducks and geese,汽车模型🚷 winging their way eastward. The Doctor readily agreed because he hadn't been on a voyage in a long while and he felt he too needed a change from the chilly December days of England.
Then John Dolittle told the Captain the whole story of Zuzana and her troubles. And all the other officers on the ship gathered around to listen.
So the Skimmer sped off into the darkness toward the tiny light far out to sea,汽车模型🍓 while the Doctor fell to wondering how his own ship was getting on which he had left at anchor some miles down the coast to the southward.
Zuzana described to the Doctor how she had followed the white man's ship a long way out in a canoe,太平洋🚈 imploring them to give her back her husband. But they had only laughed at her and gone on their way. And their ship had soon passed out of sight.
Then the Emir flew into a terrible passion.
