Writing Ink

Good writing ink is something of great importance. It is employed to convey ideas, and make records of the deepest significance, both in the literary and mercantile world. Vast quantities of it are used, and its manufacture and sale employ many persons and a considerable amount of capital. The qualities of good writing ink should be, a deep rich color permanency, an easy flow from the pen, non-liability to injure pens or paper, and freedom from sedimentary action. We have lately used some ink obtained from Messrs. More, Clark & Co., Dayton, Ohio, which, when first written with, is of a green color, but it soon becomes a fine black, and gives evidence of permanency. It flows freely from the pen, and possesses the quality of remaining free from sediment in the bottles. Scientific American, April 12, 1856
