The leader,电视剧⏳ who already knew the Doctor,高手🐗 of course,贴身🎁 came forward to get orders and to see how much mail there was to be carried.
"Now's your chance,贴身🚜 Doctor!" yelled the duck.
"Boom!" ... The shot went rolling and echoing over the silent sea like angry thunder.
"Do you feel all right now?"
And now the Doctor set out with his animals and the old Chief to return to Nyam-Nyam's country from the land where he had been imprisoned. On the way they kept meeting with groups of the Chief's people who were still hiding in the jungle. These were told the glad tidings of the Emir's promise. When they learned that their land was now free and safe again the people joined the Doctor's party for the return journey. And long before he came in sight of the village John Dolittle looked like a conquering general coming back at the head of an army,校花🏰 so many had gathered to him on the way.
But it was of little use to try to get more sleep now. The camp was astir. John Dolittle,高手🈲 bent on the one idea of hearing that story,贴身🐒 had already swung himself out of his hammock and was now washing his face noisily in the lake. Cheapside shook his feathers,校花🙈 swore a few words in Cockney and flew off his tree down to the Doctor's side.
"Tell 'im,电视剧🚑" said Cheapside,校花📷 "we'll expect two lumps of sugar on every doorstep Christmas morning for the post-birds. No sugar,电视剧📂 no letters!""Some time ago,电视剧👤" Jip began,电视剧🏡 "I knew a dog who was a beggar's dog. We met by chance one day,校花🌸 when a butcher's cart had an accident and got upset. The butcher's boy who was driving the cart was a stupid boy whom all the dogs of that town heartily disliked. So when his cart hit a lamp-post and over-turned,校花📇 spilling mutton chops and joints all over the street,校花🐕 we dogs were quickly on the scene and ran off with all his meat before he had time to pick himself up out of the gutter.
Then the Doctor put down the letter and,校花🚎 taking his penknife,贴身🏩 he cut the seaweed strings that neatly held the oyster shells together. And when he opened the shells he gave a gasp of astonishment.
"Let yourself drift,贴身😠 Doctor,校花✏" panted Jip. "Don't waste your strength fighting the current. Let yourself drift. Even if we're carried past the island out to sea we can land on the mainland further down the coast,电视剧🐕 where the current isn't so strong."
"Thank goodness,贴身🍪 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."
