Where to Find Fountain Pen for Mary-Beth in RDR2?

To find the fountain pen for Mary-Beth’s request mission in Red Dead Redemption 2, you’re gonna have to go to the Heartlands area. The place you’re looking for is called Osman Grove.

The place you’re looking for is a lonely old cottage in Osman Grove, so it’s not at all impossible to miss it if you don’t know where to look.

Once you find the cottage in Osman Grove, just go ahead and enter it. You’re in for a wonderful, cheerful surprise inside; a corpse of an old woman is sitting on a chair inside. By the looks of things, she’s been dead for a good, long time. Based on all the open medicine bottles in her wardrobe, we can safely assume that she died of some kind of illness, all alone and miserable. Anyway, your goal is the nightstand next to the corpse. Examine the contents of the nightstand drawer, and you’ll find the fountain pen that Mary-Beth wants. It’s dark in there, so it’s hard to see, but trust us, it’s there.
