All attempts to trace the writer having failed,牌桌🚒 the Doctor,牌桌💉 after two days,牌桌🦉 gave it up and went back to his regular work. This kept him so busy for the next week that he finally forgot all about the turtle and his mysterious letter.
"What charming children you have,牌桌😒" said the Doctor to the mother spoonbill,牌桌🏨 who was watching them proudly. "I'm glad they've got their playthings safely back. I wouldn't have had them lose them for anything."
