Dab-Dab,磁卡Ⓜ as soon as she got the message,磁卡🍹 went straight off to the pearl fisheries and gave the Doctor's instructions to the cormorants.
"Oh,读写器⚽ hulloa,磁卡🚜 Speedy,磁卡🚚" said the Doctor. "Glad to see you. Did you want me for something?"
Indeed,读写器🌚 if it had not been for the giant water snake,磁卡🔮 to whom mangrove swamps were the easiest kind of traveling,读写器💻 they would never have been able to make their way forward. But their guide went on ahead of them for hundreds of yards to lead the way through the best openings and to find the passages where the water was deep enough to float a canoe. And,磁卡♉ although his head was out of sight most of the time in the tangled distance,读写器👡 he kept,读写器👄 in the worst stretches,磁卡♓ a firm hold on the canoe by taking a turn about the bowpost with his tail. And whenever they were stuck in the mud he would contract that long,磁卡☎ muscular body of his with a jerk and yank the canoe forward as though it had been no more than a can tied on the end of a string.
In fact,磁卡🎨 the Doctor used to discharge him for rudeness regularly about once a month. And the city mails always got tied up soon after. But,读写器🍂 to the Doctor's great relief,读写器🙇 the City Manager always came back just when the tie-up was at its worst and put things right again.
"Anything new in London?" asked the white mouse who was also city bred.
They asked the Doctor if he could give them any news of their beloved London. But he had to admit that he also had been away from that city for a long time. However,磁卡☺ while they were talking Cheapside came into the lighthouse kitchen,磁卡🛂 looking for the Doctor. The city sparrow was delighted to find that the keepers were also Cockneys. And he gave them,读写器🅰 through the Doctor,磁卡🍀 all the latest gossip of Wapping,磁卡🚧 Limehouse,读写器🚈 the East India Docks and the wharves and the shipping of London River.
"That will be splendid,磁卡🍇" said the Doctor. "I think your friend should be very helpful to us."
The excellent postal service continued after he left. The stamps with Koko's face on them were as various and as beautiful as ever. On the occasion of the first annual review of the Fantippo Merchant Fleet a very fine two-shilling stamp was struck in commemoration,磁卡📝 showing His Majesty inspecting his new ships through a lollipop quizzing-glass. The King himself became a stamp-collector and his album was as good as a family photo-album,磁卡🈷 containing as it did so many pictures of himself. The only awkward incident that happened in the record of the post office which the Doctor had done so much to improve was when some ardent stamp-collectors,读写器📚 wishing to make the modern stamps rare,磁卡💊 plotted to have the King assassinated in order that the current issues should go out of date. But the plot was happily discovered before any harm was done.
Then spies from those neighboring countries who had always been robbing and warring upon this land began to sneak around the rocks in canoes. And,磁卡💁 of course,磁卡🎊 very soon the secret was out."His spaniel,读写器💬 Spot,读写器🚋 came up to him. And George,读写器👏 leaving his painting for a moment,磁卡🍻 placed the spaniel beside the watering trough and flattened him out and told him to keep still. I could see that George's idea was to have him look as though he were asleep in the sun. George simply loved to paint animals asleep in the sun.
"Great heavens!" cried the Doctor,读写器📤 springing up. "The pearls gone? And they were registered,读写器🔋 too!"
