“For the first practice draw in pencil top and bottom guide lines for 3/16” letters and with a 516 F or similar pen make directly in ink a series of vertical lines, drawing the pen down with a finger movement. This one stroke must be practised until the beginner can get lines vertical and of equal weight.” —French, 1911
