The signature with flourishes is partial, though substantial, and is immanently researchable.I accept the endings of the two large print French words as equally conjectural.Unfortunately, it’s 'shorthand' from Point A to Point B, with an odd detour or two, as I'm unable because of space limitations to address medieval Greek tachygraphy (). Perhaps the Acropolis Stone inscription is an example of Xenophon’s system, but lack of evidence leaves one at the altar with nothing to sacrifice.

The Arab numerals seem written by the same pen as the signature and the rest of the handwritten material, that is to say the thin lined symbols.“21 X 24" is made up of Arab numerals with an X used as a modern mathematical symbol.The provenance of any original document is always of the upmost importance, but the scribe of the Mi’kmaq handwritten book is unknown.Who or how many used the prayer and service book is also unknown.I'd rashly assumed that this was some previously unknown interim form of the Mi'kmaq-Récollet script which had emerged between the 1670s, when the Récollet missionary, Fr.
