Quills are sometimes improved by passing them between the thumb and

finger on which a small amount of vaseline or oil has been placed. A

quill may be curved by holding it over the spout of a tea-kettle of

rapidly boiling water. Place a dull knife on the underside and press the

quill hard enough to make a sharp dent. Do this every half inch. If the

quill is sufficiently steamed this may be accomplished easily, and the

result is permanent.
