observations (Altshiemers?[sic]). Although on some subjects I can
profer documentation, pens have not been one of my preoccupations.
But my synopsis of a lot of reading has been that metal nibs were in
use. Maybe Napolean or his clerks had a hangup.I must leave it to
other more informed people to state the case.
I just figured as you came back to Max's question so fast and
that you said,
".....steel nib pens were in use in 1812.
Use them and do not feel embarrassed. "
I figured you knew for sure that there were indeed steel nibs in
Upper Canada in 1812!
If we tell someone to do something and it isn't Historically Correct
or there is no documentation well ...........you know :^)
