I picked up my copy of this collectors' magazine today. After looking through its images and text, I don't believe that the handwriting that is represented to be Marilyn's is actually hers. Thoughts?

I don't have that Newsweek so I to rely on the pictures that have been posted... But I tried to compare her handwriting in these pictures to the one we see in Fragments. Her handwriting did change a bit but if these are supposedly from mid 1950's, then the handwriting looks a bit too... different. Marilyn's small y's were different (without a loop), and also she didn't dot her i's with a big round dot. But I can't be sure. Her handwriting did change but these are just some differences I spotted when comparing.
