I now present to you the second item that the “doctors” of the Miskatonic university are outfitted with by their patron, Captain J. B. Sydeian. The Apollo Mask. This mask has been based on the plague doctor masks of the 16th century. Whereas in those dark times the beak of the doctors mask was stuffed with herbs, flowers and vinegar to dispel the “miasmatic airs”. Sydeians mask instead uses an advanced filtration unit in order to protect his doctors from both chemical and biological dangers.
The meanings behind the strange markings adorning the mask in the form of paintings and religious seals are of uncertain origin and usage.
What dangers Sydeian believed his doctors faced is not yet known from my researches. I have no doubt that further investigation will yield more in depth findings.
I know there have been some words of doubt from some parties regarding my reports but I leave you with words from Sydeian’s own writings though quoting Shakespeare.
“There are more things in heaven and earth, Horatio, Than are dreamt of in your philosophy.”
Your Obedient Servant,
Mr. Oswald Varner
