The Pen of Kate Chopin

Kate Chopin (1850-1904) author of The Awakening 
is considered a forerunner of feminism.

O what a lovely pen - how I adore this quality. Can anyone explain to me how hairs and such rubbish get at the point of a pen and make one's writing - not already perfect - look like the trail of a spider with his legs dipped in ink. I see no hairs in the ink bottle none on the paper or pen - and still here are visible proofs of them. They are like Topsey they "growed."

Kate Chopin (born Kate O' Flaberty), Saturday May 8th 1869, Private Papers, ed. by Emily Toth, Per Seyersted, p. 84.
