Dear Professor Contraption,
I found this odd thingamabob in my grandfather's old tackle box a fortnight ago. It is a glass vial of some sort, with a gold screw-on cap, and a hole in the upper right corner. It appears to have lost its plug. The gears do not seem to be working, but I imagine it is an old air purifier. London air enters the hole when the plug is dettached, and you sip the fresh, Ozonified air through the open cap, just like you would a flask of whisky. Gentlemen in the center of London would have carried such a contraption in their coat pocket, given the murky atmosphere of coal smoke in the city.
I am holding on to it for safekeeping, but know that whenever you are on your way to the old city, you are welcome to come knocking on my door to borrow it.
