Received a telegraph this afternoon confirming the shipment of powdered Lycium is now on it’s way and should reach Babbage in a matter of days.
The scruffy little urchin who delivered the communiqué had the cheek to demand a tip for simply performing his job. Sent him away with half a fobb. Thought about giving him a jolt with the fulminator on his way out but if I keep electrocuting every presumptuously little brat there will be no one left to deliver the messages.
Once the Lycium arrives it should be a small matter of introducing it into the water supply, and only a little harder getting it into the brewery stock. Although given how much the beer is watered down in Babbage I wonder if I need bother. By then the fey should be dropping like led dirigibles.
Still waiting on the despatch of the Deccatronic Amplitude Modulator. Add a note to the list to send them a communiqué.
If this works, perhaps the Moreau hordes can be next.
