“They’ve had their bowl mended, and now they are going off on another voyage.”
“Come on,” said a boy to the Man. “Come and see them off.”
“See who off?”
“Why, the Three Wise Men of Gotham. They’ve had their bowl mended, and now they are going off on another voyage.”
So they all ran down to the beach, and there to be sure, was a very large bowl tossing around on the ocean, which wasn’t of salt water at all, like that at Squirrel Island, but made all of lemonade.
“All ashore going ashore!” called out the wisest of the Wisemen, and pulled up the dictionary which they used as an anchor, and pushed the bowl off the shore with a lemonade ladle. All the little boys and girls screamed “Good-bye! Good-bye!” and began to play having a tea-party.
