  • Mr.James Scott has a garage in Silbury
  • [00:19.41]
  • and now he has just bought another garage in Pinhurst.
  • [00:25.10]
  • Pinhurst is only five miles from Silbury,
  • [00:29.22]
  • but Mr. Scott cannot get a telephone for his new garage,
  • [00:34.07]
  • so he has just bought twelve pigeons.
  • [00:38.46]
  • Yesterday, a pigeon carried the first message from Pinhurst to Silbury.
  • [00:45.11]

  • [00:50.36]
  • Mr.Scott has sent a great many requests for spare parts
  • [00:55.55]
