Regarding the changes to the objects being investigated in her office, Mrs. M. ————  invites you to read her journal entry on the progress of her stove design and her next project:

I have finally finished my sketches for my new stove based on this lovely German stove tile! Upon sharing with her my ambitious endeavor to create my own design for a new stove, my Mother wrote to her friends, the Dwyer family in Detroit to request their help. They were intrigued by my inspiration, and in a letter back to me, they shared their enthusiasm to receive my plans! Now all that is left to do is to send them on to The Michigan Stove Company and see what can be done.

In the meantime, while the plans are still being set, I’ve moved the tile to the top of my desk. As it will be some time before my stove is completed, I’ve decided I will take this opportunity to investigate my dear Edward Bingham’s Puzzle Jug.

I’ve purchased some new measuring devices and I am quite ready to unravel the innards of this mysterious object. While I already have a few antique puzzle jugs in my cabinet, I am almost certain there will be some surprises with this new recreation considering the rather confident letter Edward sent along with its arrival.

I look forward to showing Edward I am still just as clever as the day I first noticed his forgery!
