Final Exam Hint #3 Answer

Pretend that you live in the 1890’s.

Were there ballpoint pens in the 1895?
No.

What did the pens of 1895 do that today’s pens do not?
They used fluid inks (iron gall) that took time to dry (dip pens with steel nibs).  As a result, the wet ink was typically blotted to aid in drying.
