Phileas Fogg, after paying the stipulated price of his passage to John Busby, and rewarding that worthy with the additional sum of five hundred and fifty pounds, ascended the steamer with Aouda and Fix; and they started at once for Nagasaki and Yokohama.视屏如果没有播放按钮请刷新网页

Never had an American ship's crew shown more zeal or patience; its failure could not be placed to their charge--there remained nothing but to return.手机在线播放半斤八两
