    Cursive example:  small "t" at the end of a word

      I'm posting this example, because I realize that some transcribers are not familiar with cursive.  I will post similar examples as I come across them.

       

      This letter contains an example of the way a small "t" is sometimes written in cursive.  If it's at the end of a word, the "t" is not crossed.  Look at the word "Chestnut" in the address of this letter.  This writer uses this method throughout the letter, in words like "set" and "Brevet."
