"Your Majesty,天下💳" said the Doctor,天下👳 "I have now a plan to provide your country with an excellent service of foreign mails if you will agree to what I suggest."
"Take him below!" roared the Captain. "Take him below before I kill him." "You sound clean crazy to me,天下📮 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."
Somewhat puzzled,天下🚝 the Doctor first read the letter,天下🚒 while Dab-Dab,宋鸿兵🌝 who was still badgering him about taking a holiday,天下🐐 looked over his shoulder. The letter said:
"I know!" cried Jip. "It's the dragon! This is King Kakaboochi's mother-in-law we're sitting on!""I should say he did,天下😐" growled Mudface. "But that belongs to the story of the Flood. You have come far. You must be weary and in need of food."
"'Do you realize what that pearl means to us?'"
As the pushmi-pullyu was now quite ready to leave,宋鸿兵📌 the Doctor thanked the swallows and told them he would be delighted to have their company. Then for the remainder of that day all was hustle and hurry and bustle,天下🎻 getting the ship provisioned and making preparations for the long trip back to England.The next thing I must tell you about is the Prize Story Competition: The fame of the Puddleby fireside-circle,宋鸿兵🎴 where the Doctor had amused his pets with so many interesting tales,天下🚣 had become quite a famous institution. Too-Too had gossiped about it; Gub-Gub,天下😣 Jip and the white mouse had boasted of it. (You see,宋鸿兵🎌 they were always proud that they could say they were part of the great man's regular household.) And before long,宋鸿兵🔒 through this new post office of their own,宋鸿兵☎ creatures all over the world were speaking of it and discussing it by letter. Next thing,天下🚜 the Doctor began to receive requests for stories by mail. He had become equally famous as an animal doctor,宋鸿兵🚂 an animal educator and an animal author.
