TO WHOM IT MAY CONCERN –
After extensive research effort by a respected panel of city luminaries in the steampunk City-State of New Babbage, it has come to the attention of Clockwinder Tenk (the City’s nominal head of state) that the most important ingredient for those successfully battling cancer is Hope. The conclusion, of course, is that our City has an obligation need to manufacture it. LOTS of it.
So, under special order 1370, issued by the Clockwinder’s office, a special charter was granted to the New Babbage Manufacturing Consortium(TM) to establish a Workshop for the construction of Hope. Our research shows that another organization (known as the “American Cancer Society”) has already developed similar capabilities. We are determined to emulate – in our own way – their efforts.
Using the latest designed in steam- and aetheric-powered machinery, and all the ingenuity of New Babbage’s not-inconsequential builders, this factory was established. Since the highest quality hope comes from adversity, we have decided to establish our workshop in the most inhospitable location we could find: the Land of Permanent Winter. Rail lines have been laid from faraway population centers, an aetheric power condenser tower (built using the very latest Tesla designs) constructed, and insulated greenhouse sheathing erected to protect the machinery within. The Line travels through six stations, each designed to add an element to the final product, and has been automated using state-of-the-art analytical engine instruction sets to operate twenty-four hours per day, seven days a week, under the harshest winter conditions, to create Hope in mountainous abundance. The machinery is operated by the clever, unruly, and somewhat cantankerous Clanks known as Merrymen, who need no rest or sleep. (Please note: visitors are advised not to taunt or otherwise harass the Merrymen as they go about their work. Workshop Management will not be responsible for the consequences.)
Visitors are encouraged to take the guided tour through the Workshop, and are invited to take home a factory Sample of Hope as our gift to you. We trust you will enjoy your visit.
