Changing handwriting

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.
