"Dear Doctor: I am sending you,恐怖🔣 inclosed,活动🍀 some pretty pebbles which I found the other day while cracking open oysters. I never saw pebbles of this color before,活动🐤 though I live by the seashore and have been opening shellfish all my life. My husband says they're oyster's eggs. But I don't believe it. Would you please tell me what they are? And be careful to send them back,活动⛲ because my children use them as playthings and I have promised them they shall have them to keep."
"Oh,恐怖💰 hulloa,恐怖🌾 Speedy,活动🚈" said the Doctor. "Glad to see you. Did you want me for something?"
"So,活动🌝 picking myself up wearily,活动🎡 I started off for the miller's shop. On the threshold I paused a moment. It was a terrible step I was about to take. I gazed miserably down the street,活动🎨 thinking upon the hardness of life and the sadness of love,活动🎯 and there,恐怖🔬 coming toward me,恐怖🔵 with a bandage around his tail,恐怖✌ was my own brother!
"There you are!" said Too-Too. "He has a vegetable mind."
"Doctor,恐怖🍆" panted the gull,活动🚛 "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,活动🍔 you know,活动🚔 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."John Dolittle tore open the envelope.
And he realized now,恐怖⬛ as he listened to Zuzana,恐怖⚓ what was wrong with the Fantippo post office and why she had never got an answer to the letter which would have saved her husband from slavery.
"Thank goodness,活动🚅 I had you in my pocket!" he said. "That was a most uncomfortable position. I wonder what kind of a prison old Nyam-Nyam got. This is the worst one I was ever in."
At length reaching the great glass lamp chamber at the top,活动🍑 he set down his candle and,活动🚘 striking two matches at once he held one in each hand and lit the big wick in two places.While he was talking to the Chief (who seemed to be a kindly old man) Speedy swept into the Chief's hut in a great state of excitement.
"And that,恐怖💍 John Dolittle,恐怖📼 is the end of the story of the Flood by one who saw it with his own eyes."
"'What's the matter,恐怖😂 Jip?' said he. 'House on fire or something?'
Toward evening the Doctor arrived at a small settlement of straw huts,活动🐙 the village of Chief Nyam-Nyam. Calling on the Chief with an introduction from King Koko,活动🔍 the Doctor was well received. He found,恐怖📄 however,恐怖🎭 that the country over which this chief ruled was indeed in a very poor state. For years powerful neighbors on either side had made war on the old Chief and robbed him of his best farming lands,活动✈ till now his people were crowded onto a narrow strip of rocky shore where very little food could be grown. The Doctor was particularly distressed by the thinness of the few chickens pecking about in the streets. They reminded him of old broken-down cab-horses,活动🍒 he said."It came in handy for them,活动💌 too. That part of the country got flooded one springtime in the middle of the night and there wasn't a dry match or a light to be had anywhere. Then those children,恐怖🏤 who had traveled all that country scores of times in the dark with me,活动🔮 saved a great many lives. They acted as guides,恐怖🎴 you understand,恐怖🌼 and took the people to safety,活动📑 because they knew how to use their eyes,活动😸 and the others didn't."
