Samples for handwriting. Taken from “The Instructor, or American Young Man’s Best Companion Containing Spelling, Reading, Writing, and Arithmetick” by George Fisher, published in 1786 by Isaiah Thomas, Worcester.

The original is now located at the Massachusetts Historical Society, Boston, Massachusetts.

So now, let’s take our nibs and pens and practice these to use in our Christmas cards! (OK, that will be another entry XD)
