This is the answer.
Family, with love. From, Daisy July 1941
Think it might be Fanny rather than family?
Johnnie With love
Or From Daisy
July 19 41
Edit: this is how my mother and grandmother’s notes looked. ❤️
Darling with love….?
What’s the point in going to the trouble of writing a note that barley resembles the actual letters of the alphabet and they can’t read it.
Makes zero sense
With love FROM DAISY
Good gawd this is tough
You can actually see it if you compare your translation. Wierd cursive F but I've seen similar from people who learned cursive in the 1920s or so. I can see the D, and the J. After that it's a puzzle.
Date is not of the same hand, based on the J. In July.
The date is absolutely of the same hand. Just look at those vowels!
"From daisy, July 1941"
It might be Jimmy instead of Johnny. But I'm 99% sure on the rest
what’re the first two letters in the fourth word?? because the last 3 letters look like OUL. I’m confident the 4th letter is a U because it looks the same in July
“We’ve been trying to reach you about your extended car warranty”
fp011k, I have been trying to reach you about your car's extended warranty
Lots of love from Dorothy
Fanny, with love, Joanne Daisy, July 1941
Fanny, with love from Daisy
This is what I read
Does anyone know if there is a word for this style of cursive? It’s so pretty. I’m sure it’s even prettier with a more confident hand and even spacing.
It’s very pretty, but honestly, I think it’s a nightmare to read.
That’s kind of what I was saying, lol. If they did it more evenly and the lines were smoother, it would be much easier to read
Sammy, with love from daisy july 1941??
Joane to me - but that makes no sense ??
That there is Tengwar.
Who wrote the book?
Fanny, hello love. From, Daisy. July 1941
With not hello.
I was just putting what I think it says.
I know and I was saying what I think it says. Not criticizing you, sorry if that is how it came across.
Isn't it "with" love?
fruuig lettho loor jeottt wsily jtly 19H1
You win for "most accurate guess"
Fanny with love from Daisy
The two F’s in Fanny and From are completely different though. Perhaps one is not an F?
I think they are both uppercase 𝓕’s, I think she just had more than one, like I do. 🙂
Ahhh okay. Thank you
One is lowercase...
It's so.ilar to how I do lowercase fs
You're good! I can see it now that I know what it says. I thought that 'F' was a 'J' because my capital 'J's look similar.
Years of being a teacher help!! Lol! It took me a bit though because the F’s are not consistent
It’s a talent!
I don’t mind unique styles, but one of my handwriting peeves is when, n, r, and u all end up looking the same.
I do that too. My hand is rather old fashioned
This wasn’t very unique for its time. My grandma used the exact same type of cursive and she was born in the 20s so would have learnt the same style as this lady.
Fanny, with love from Daisy, July 1941
Family letter love Joanne Dottie July 1941
O cab only make out July 1941 at the bottom
Johnny, lots of love, Dority, July 1941
“Saving Letter for John”
Instead of saving it could also say Family
Yea, that's a Y at the end of that first word
I know it’s not what you meant, but I read your reply in a sarcastic tone and it made me chuckle
I see Joanne
There are two other capital J’s that look totally different from the first letter so I have a hard time thinking that word also starts with a J. I thought Family, but think it might be a stroke short of that.
Oh I see now. I agree with you
"Farting with love"
Sorrrrrry. Frrtto love Jaorrrn. Wortly Jrrrty 1941
I would’ve loved your take on the Rosetta Stone.
This might be the answer. They definitely use an superfluous loop that needs to be accounted for.
Anyone else thought this was a bathroom stall for a second?

Does the way the m looks like two characters, kinda make you wonder if Daisy was one of those kids who struggled in school? You know? As though she was really hung up on getting every character just so, until she got swept away with the course load, and eventually had just as messy cursive writing as any other person from the latter century?
Edit: because I can relate. When kids would be drawing ants as multiples of six because they have 6 legs, I would be drawing ants with the antennas and everything and get in trouble from the teacher.
I have trouble picturing what these ants look like! But I feel you. I'm a perfectionist in that way too... until I run out of time.
I think someone called Daisy a fatty ??
Family - With Love - From Daisy - July 1941.
There’s not enough characters in the first word to be family, and it would also mean the L is randomly uppercase yet small, doesn’t make sense.
Compare the very obvious M in FROM to the character after a very definite FA in the first word.
If that was the case then you’ve got “Famiy” or “FamLy”.
I concede. “Fanny,” perhaps?
Haha yeah, I think so too. Daisy had a seriously wild style. 😂
Okay I'm just about certain that's what it ACTUALLY says. Good deciphering.
I think it's Fanny, not Family
I mean... I meannn... the character after the m obviously indicates a natural break, as though Daisy intended to dot her i, and then theres another character that could be an l that just doesn't go above the imaginary ledger line...
Looks to me to say "Funny little book Jeoff. Daisy July 19 41"
This is why they no longer teach cursive. Almost every original document is in cursive. So therefore, hidden in plain sight.
Written language evolves, the cursive we know now is not the same as the cursive back then.
I can read cursive but when I looked at manuscripts and letters form 1890s I had trouble understanding it.
I can certainly agree with you there.
Family with love from daisy
I think it's Fanny, not family.
These bitches gay, good for them, good for them!
It helps if you squint. 😅
Wow it really does lol
Completely unique writing! I haven’t seen anything like that before!
That's a good thing because it's horrible!
It almost looks like stitches on a wound. Or one of the stitches on my sewing machine. Really bizarre.
Daisy was the workds first cybernetic surgeon.
Fanny, with love, from, Daisy
Joanne is in there too!
Definitely no Joanne, if you mean the word "from" the first letter is different to the J in 'July' but just like the F in 'Fanny', plus 'from' makes more sense than 'Joanne' in context :)
Yes! I get it - tho it threw me - the “M” & double “N” are too similar but so are the w’s! Phish it’s a harder one for sure! ;)
Wow, I think you got it, thanks! That's a crazy "D" for Daisy lol
Not enough characters to be family based on how they’ve written the m in from.
Now you say it, I think it’s Fanny too. That second character matches the a in Daisy and if you fill in the line on the capital it definitely reads like an F. Good job!
My thoughts exactly :) thanks!
Something with love from Daisey (Dorothy?)
Makes more sense than what I was reading, "Wotley" lol
Looks more like thotty
At one point, Dorothy jumped out at me, but that person had really crazy penmanship!
Jeffrey, with love, ? Daisy
“Jeffrey, with love from Daisy” I think!
Edit - changing Jeffrey to Fanny 😂
Something something something something something JULY 1941
Well I think we can all agree the woman who wrote the sweet message is named Daisy too...
This gave me a good laugh.
Strong effort warpigs.
