After hunting around New Babbage for a month, Maxwell finally locates his home: Mr. McKenzie’s watch and clock shop. However, Maxwell’s relief quickly turns to despair!
Attached to the boarded-up door of the empty shop, a small card read, “Public Announcement: We regret to inform you that Mr. Albert Ebenezer McKenzie sadly passed away last Friday. The funeral will be held at St Mary’s Church, Main Street, New Babbage at 12.00 noon on Monday September 22nd. In lieu of flowers, please send contributions to the benevolent fund of the Processional Association of Master Clock Makers and Sellers. Thank you.”
