Penmanship at 74 years of age

Every few years I pull out the letter from great-great grandfather Sasse and find a source of inspiration and amazement. Today I am just in awe of his penmanship at age seventy-four. He was writing on lined paper.  He must have used a fountain pen in 1911, not quill and ink! His letter must have been a "final copy", as there are no indications of editing or corrections.

With a comfortable pen I can write for a few hours, but my penmanship is inconsistent in style and legibility.  I blame this on my tremor, which is inherited from the other side of my family.

Now that I've finished the transcription, I'm excited to post the rest of it!
