Technical Counselor Dispatched to Edinburgh

Catalysed by the recent translation into German and publication of Experiments upon Magnesia Alba, Quicklime, and some other Alcaline Substances, Ducal Technical Counselor Werner von Traun has been dispatched by his grace to Scotland to consult at greater length with Professor Joseph Black on the gravitic levity of phlogiston and its pyrotechnic implications.

Counselor von Traun's itinerary is to take him to Tradgardland, where he is to secure passage to the Shetland Islands and thence to the Edinburgh. While in Tradgardland, he also hopes to tour the Feuerwerkfabriken and herring packing facilities of that principality.
