any public version of babel that works with 2.09 was scrapped something
like 10 years ago.  you need to search the net for *very* old versions
of the package.  current versions of babel will most emphatically not
help, unless you can bend plain tex babel to run with old latex.

it's likely that your client would do better to convert the document to
modern latex.
