The Diary author does something similar when writing the name "Michael" on pages 2 and 10 of the Diary.
There's a perhaps clearer example of the capital "M" on p49.

Whilst on p49 I note that the word "lucky" appears, and twice on p50, spelt correctly each time. However, closing the first block of text on p8, we appear to have "I feel luckey".

Well, looking at Anne Graham's handwriting objectively, the first thing I notice is that she has one hell of a dramatic slant to the left. Why is she writing at such an extreme angle? It's like the sheet of paper is on a slow moving treadmill. By the time I was done reading it I felt like I was about to fall out of the left side my chair.

It's also a bit unfortunate that her letter uses ruled paper, and the Maybrick Diary doesn't.

Yes, that is indeed another good comparison.

Here's another example for you all to consider. It's an extract from the famous "head nor tale off" letter...

The ‘y’ in royal compared with the one at the end of ‘neatly’ is also a contrast. (In the first letter)

My first comment is “why did i have to study ‘The Tempest’ when Anne’s daughter got ‘The Hobbit.’ Not fair!
