A few years ago I decided to improve my penmanship by learning to write in this, late, 17th century style of cursive. I feel confident enough to say that, Louis XVI's label and jacobsaunders's label were, absolutely, written be different people; too many inconsistancies.image.jpeg.74cad5e9a8e8e2ecac6e0b4b106f1694.jpegimage.jpeg.db0a745180c395b09ba3989c174e3635.jpeg

Preceding lower case letters often tail-off to the succeeding letter and, are often written individually or in small groupings of letters, rather than the start-to-finish style, of today. Probably, because they were using a bird's feather, holding a drop of wet ink, to write with and, therefore, had to write much slower than we do today.

The "p" in Joseph ends at the "h" and, the "h" starts at, aprox., the middle of the letter? The slants don't match, either. "K", "z", "S" and "M" don't match. I, also, learned to write with my other hand and, although, my dominate hand is neater, a handwriting expert would probably know that the same person did the writing, because, an individual's style of starting, stopping and grouping of letters remains fairly consistent.
