Lectional signsone correction (by same hand); some errors.
Handmedium-sized to small, informal, round, leaning very slightly forward, of attempted bilinearity, irregular in size and spacing, somewhat shaky, written with a thick pen by a moderately fluent school hand of the "rapid" type, separating all letters; some letters are decorated with serifs and roundels; the whole script is rather clumsy and lacks uniformity.
