This inscription was written in a rather angular hand with a slanted pen and some shading. Ascenders are long and can be wedged or lack decoration, and the down-strokes are straight but shorter than ascenders. Minims have approach-strokes but lack feet. Horned a was used once, the top of which is straight but rising and the two sides straight; the second a is teardrop-shaped, though with a relatively rounded top. Round c was used, as was Caroline h, low s, and straight-limbed dotted y with straight branches and tail.
