And now very soon Cheapside took entire charge of the city delivery of mails in Fantippo. Of course,loveless🚵 as soon as the mail began to get heavy,loveless🔍 when the people got the habit of writing more to their friends and relatives,漫画🙀 Cheapside could not deal with all the mail himself. So he sent a message by a swallow to get fifty sparrows from the streets of London (who were,loveless📹 like himself,同人🎺 accustomed to city ways),漫画🎑 to help him with the delivery of letters. And around the native holiday seasons,漫画📍 the Harvest Moon and the Coming of the Rains,loveless🔍 he had to send for fifty more to deal with the extra mail.
Cheapside was a wonderful bird. But it seemed as though he just couldn't go a whole month without being rude to somebody. The Doctor said it was in his nature.

"Jip hung up the sign"
"'Look here,loveless♠' he said to the beggar. 'Would you like me to re-draw all your pictures for you? Of course,漫画🆘 those done on the pavement you couldn't sell,同人🉑 but we can rub them out. And I've got some spare canvases in my satchel here. Maybe you could sell a few. I can sell pictures in London any day in the week. But I've never been a pavement artist before. It would be rather a lark to see what happens.'
"Ah,loveless🎁 hah!" said the King. "A new kind of magic. I understand. Very good. The High Kingdom of Fantippo shall have a post office of its own. And my serene and beautiful face shall be on all the stamps and my letters shall travel by faster magic than any of them."The Doctor comforted her as best he could,loveless☎ saying that if he failed he would get her another husband,同人🎂 just as good. But she didn't seem to care for that idea and went on wailing,同人📁 "Alas! Alas!"
The old turtle thanked him over and over again and the parting was a very affecting one. When at last the goodbyes were all said,loveless🔣 they got into the canoe and set out on the return journey.
"What charming children you have,loveless🙌" said the Doctor to the mother spoonbill,loveless🚨 who was watching them proudly. "I'm glad they've got their playthings safely back. I wouldn't have had them lose them for anything."
And then there was a solemn silence in the lighthouse while the Doctor above and Dab-Dab below thought gloomily of that big ship sailing onward to her wreck because they had no matches.
"Well,同人🔊 what have you done with the matches,loveless🆒 Doctor?" called Dab-Dab. "They were always in your coat."
