13. Fountain Pen, Asking Question

You will notice that I have written this letter with a fountain pen. I once received a letter from Mahadev [Desai] which was written with a pencil, and therefore could be read with some difficulty. Since then I have been using a fountain pen even at the cost of a little violence done to my mind. I would love to write with a reed pen but then it would consume precisely twice as much time.
