Quill Pen (Orleans)
From the Super Mario Wiki
The Quill Pen, also referred to as simply the Quill, is an item in the SNES and PC releases of Mario's Time Machine. It is a simple, white feather with a blackened tip, used as a writing utensil; it also comes with a black inkwell. It is given to Mario by a scribe in 15th-century Orleans after Mario continues bothering him with questions to the point where the scribe gives him the Quill Pen and orders him to deliver it to the Duke of Alençon. The Duke previously mentions that he lacked a quill to write notes, and is happy to receive it. In exchange, he gives Mario a Horse's Bit and asks Mario to give it to the stablemaster.
