Red Dead Redemption 2 Fountain Pen – Why Can’t I Gift to Mary-Beth?

Looking for the Red Dead Redemption 2 fountain pen or simply can’t gift the fountain pen to Mary-Beth? It’s not a glitch, you’re just looking in the wrong place. The task, which is tied to the Errand Boy trophy/achievement, carries some real confusion with it thanks to an ambiguous Red Dead Redemption 2 fountain pen location. Here’s how to find it.

Red Dead Redemption 2 Fountain Pen – Why Can’t I Gift to Mary-Beth?

Simply put, you’ve (probably) not got the right fountain pen. Sure, it might look and feel like a fountain pen but, brother, that’s not the one Mary-Beth tasks you with retrieving in Chapter 2. While you are given a pen in Valentine, that’s not where you need to look to complete this objective. You need to head a little further east to find this ink-redible item. So, get on your horse and let’s mosey on down to the correct fountain pen location. As if this game wasn’t confusing enough already.

Red Dead Redemption 2 Fountain Pen Location – Where to Find

Make your way to Emerald Station to begin your journey towards finding the fountain pen. From there, bear south-east until you come across a cabin in Osman Grove. It’s circled in the map above in case you need a little nudge in the right direction.

Head inside and you’ll find not only the dead remains of a woman but also a small desk drawer towards the back of the cabin. Rummage through there and you’ll eventually come up with the goods: Mary-Beth’s fountain pen.

Mercifully, the hard work is done. To finish the errand, go up to Mary-Beth in camp and tap Y/Triangle (depending on your console) and that’ll instruct Arthur to gift her the fountain pen. All that trouble for a measly pen. At least she said thank you.
