Mr. Write (Link's Awakening)

Mr. Write lives in a house in the northern part of the Mysterious Woods. During the trading quest for the Magnifying Lens, Link is prompted to deliver a Letter to Mr. Write from Christine, a goat living in Animal Village. In the letter, she sends a picture of Princess Peach from the Super Mario Bros. series with her name on it, fooling the unbeknowing Mr. Write into thinking that he is corresponding with a Human. In return for the Letter, Mr. Write gives Link the Broom.
