Most Significant

I’d really like to picture Mina in the churchyard with a portable writing desk on her lap, like those in this article: https://victorianweb.org/art/design/furniture/golden1.html

However, she is writing in shorthand, which doesn’t need a lot of paper and ink. For example, a Victorian neurologist’s shorthand notes were “80,000-word[s]… contained in a notebook the size of an iPhone” (https://blog.oup.com/2012/06/exploring-victorian-brain-gowers/). All she needs is her notebook, a dip pen, and a travel inkwell.
