Joe, in every language there are certain words, usually short, of frequent occurrence that have only syntactical significance that contribute little to the conveyance of ideas.

In English:

articles- a, an, the
conjunctions- and, but, for, or
subordinating conjunctions- if, that, as, than, when, where
prepositions- at, by, in, for, from, off, to, of, on, after, before, over, until, with
personal pronouns- I, you, he, she, it, they, we, them
demonstrative pronouns- this, that, these, those
relative pronouns- who, which, what, that
indefinite pronouns- one, none, some, any, each, both

Because of their frequency of occurrence, their shortness, and their relative insignificance, they exhibit a greater degree of unconscious characterization or individuality than other words may.

The short, small, simple words are what to go after when comparing Nosovitsky's handwriting to the Dr. Hudson letter.

I would suggest constructing handwriting comparison charts similar to the charts I once emailed to you. You can make letter form charts and word charts. When you have the letters and words juxtaposed to each other it is much easier to study the details. You will not have to jump back and forth between documents during your examination.

Photocopy enlargements of the handwritings would be useful and so would an inexpensive magnifying glass.
