One of the girls in the real letters has noticed that their handwriting is changing over the four years of writing. I’ve checked back. She is absolutely correct. Is this a sign of maturing – girls who were 13-14 are now 17-18- ? Their handwriting is considerably different now from the way it was at the beginning. Or were they expected to change their handwriting to conform with a national strategy?
Well, I have just two of the transcribed letters left now. There are 48 pages of writing now that I am finding difficult to read in some cases and in others impossible. I’m getting some help from some acquaintances in Germany.
I guess at least some of tomorrow’s writing may go off on another tack.
