Mysterious Souvenir from Dr. X Summary

Before his departure, Hackworth meets with one of Dr. X's couriers. The man hands him a card containing a program to generate a big and unidentified item from a matter compiler as soon as he reaches his destination. Once in Vancouver, Hackworth forwards the map indicating the movements of the original copy of the Illustrated Primer to Finkle-McGraw, along with a letter noting that it took two years to locate the lost copy because the book probably remained inside a building during all that period. Lord Finkle-McGraw answers that he cannot wait to meet the girl and her book. Hackworth uses the card in a matter compiler and the latter produces a mechanical horse that is able to fold into a suitcase. He names his new mount "Kidnapper".
