    The formation of the letters aside, Michael Maybrick's writing actually looks like that of an adult. The diary's writing, by contrast, could easily be that of a teenager. I'm not saying that a kid wrote the diary; it's just an informal way of categorising the two styles.
    The other thing to be said is that Michael Maybrick was a man of erudition. He was a recognized composer and singer, composing and performing under the name of Stephen Adams. It seems hard to square those facts with whomever wrote the Diary. Would Michael really write "I took refreshment. . ." or any other odd turns of phrase in the Diary?

      Michael never performed using the name Stephen Adams, Chris. He used his real name.

        Florid and melodramatic prose from a megalomaniac MM? Perish the thought.

          Chris. I'm puzzled as to why the perfectly ordinary phrase "I took refreshment....." should bother you?
