After about twenty minutes she brought back a black duck-like bird with a tuft on his head.
"'Tuffie brought us home,版权📞' says the little girl. 'She came out after us and led us here by going ahead of us and meowing.'
The Emir stared at the prisoner open-mouthed,版权🚆 speechless with astonishment. Now,版权📷 the day before this he had heard for the first time the story of the rout of the Amazons. The Emir had refused to believe it. But now he began to feel that anything might be true about this man.
"Maybe it's a cow's bone,法律😉" said he.
Well,版权🌑 after ten days John Dolittle got what is called the Domestic Mails in pretty good shape. Domestic mails are those that carry letters from one part of a country to another part of the same country,版权💷 or from one part of a city to another. The mails that carry letters outside the country to foreign lands are called Foreign Mails. To have a regular and good service of foreign mails in the Fantippo post office the Doctor found a hard problem,版权🔭 because the mail ships which could carry letters abroad did not come very often to this port. Fantippo,版权💷 although King Koko was most proud of it,版权⭐ was not considered a very important country among the regular civilized nations and two or three ships a year were all that ever called there.
In a very short time the ship presented a curious and extraordinary sight,法律👒 with the mud nests stuck all over her and birds flying in thousands round her masts,法律🌞 coming and going,版权💐 building homes and feeding young ones.
So Dab-Dab flew away over the sea and John Dolittle continued to paddle his canoe bravely forward.
Then the Doctor asked Speedy to send off messages through the birds to every corner of the earth. And to ask all the leaders of seagulls,版权♐ tomtits,版权🐛 magpies,版权💘 thrushes,法律🌇 stormy petrels,法律🌊 finches,版权🌱 penguins,版权🚪 vultures,版权😓 snow buntings,法律🐍 wild geese and the rest to come to No-Man's-Land,版权🐾 because John Dolittle wanted to speak to them.
