After speaking with the Thoughtful Father, he will explain that his son is studying to be a scholar. The father will want to gift something to his son but won't have much of an idea of what scholars need or want. After this, you will want to head over to Cape Cold and speak with the scholar living in the house all the way to the west. Once you get to him, you will need to steal the Silver Quill from his inventory and return it to the father. He'll then gift it to his son as he adventures off to be a scholar.
