THE LAND OF THE MANGROVE SWAMPS
"Doctor,综艺节目🍉" panted the gull,脱口秀😊 "the Cape Stephen Light is out. I don't know what's the matter. It has never gone out before. We use it as a land-mark,今晚👳 you know,今晚🏇 when we are flying after dark. The night's as black as ink. I'm afraid some ship will surely run into the cape. I thought I'd come and tell you."
"Oh,综艺节目🕊 quite,脱口秀🏤" said the Doctor,综艺节目🈺 "thank you. But why did you swim under water?"
"But I don't understand,脱口秀🚔" said John Dolittle. "I thought Wilkins had made off with them."
"Listen,今晚© Doctor,今晚🎑" said Speedy-the-Skimmer,脱口秀🆓 "suppose I fly over to it and see what kind of a ship it is and come back and tell you. Who knows? It might be able to help us."
"Well,综艺节目♥ I was always adventurous by nature. And,今晚👧 plucking up my courage,脱口秀🔇 I scrambled up the vat,综艺节目🚅 on to the edge of it. It was awful dark and I could just see the dye,今晚😭 glimmering murky and dim,今晚🍅 far down inside.Now,今晚▫ the peoples of West Africa have curious tastes in dress. They love bright things. And some Fantippo dandy started the idea of using up old stamps off letters by making suits of clothes out of them. They looked very showy and smart and a suit of this kind made of stamps became a valuable possession among the natives.
"Well,今晚👼 what have you done with the matches,今晚🐎 Doctor?" called Dab-Dab. "They were always in your coat."
"And that,综艺节目🚇 John Dolittle,今晚🐐 is the end of the story of the Flood by one who saw it with his own eyes."But presently the people began complaining that they had been robbed. They had paid good money for the stamps,今晚🚟 they said,脱口秀💨 trusting in their magic power,今晚🏧 and they had put their letters in the boxes at the corners of the streets as they had been told. But one day a cow had rubbed her neck against one of the letter boxes and burst it open,综艺节目📅 and inside there were all the people's letters,综艺节目💳 which had not traveled one inch from where they put them!
"But when the sailors saw a great flock of land birds passing over the ship going southwest instead of west,脱口秀🙀 they took new heart,脱口秀✏ for they were sure land must lie not far to the southwestward.
