What does "t" mean in this handwriting?

It reads:
Let everyone know I'm doing good.
We'll all get through this as a family.

The meaning of the above can be well understood. But there is the letter t there. What does it mean?

It is not a letter "t." It is a plus sign...+...meaning "and."

Read the message using "and" where the "t" is.

Wait a minute:
Does he mean "Let everyone know I'm doing good and we'll all get through this as a family"?

It could be meant as an informal ampersand meaning "and".

If it is a plus sign, then it means "plus" or "in addition."

Yes, Ori, and you should give Frank a red star. It's probably the first time he's ever been right about anything.

@PUNKEY,
The adverb "good" blew right by all the American grammarians. Smile

@JTT,

Maybe Mother Teresa wrote it.

Did Contrex imply that he doesn't agree with Mother Teresa. Or be frank and come to point: MT is a hypocritical imageļ¼Ÿ

@oristarA,

No hypocrisy at play here.

Mother Teresa went about the world doing good. (good: here, a noun)
What she did, she did well. (well, an adverb. "Good" is not an adverb)

All I did was substitute an addition symbol (+) for the first letter (T) of 'Teresa'; that was my little (visual) joke related to the topic of this thread; I have nothing to say about the Catholic nun, about whom I know little.

Hypocrisy and McTag's usual delusionary maundering at play here.

McTag may have inadvertently made the trivial mistake.
But an attack for this small mistake is far worse than that.
Do use elegant words to dignify yourself and be a gentleman, JTT.

A trivial mistake, Ori, one of many.

What of 'maundering', Ori? Smile

What an odd statement.
Would you care to give examples of "good" used as an adverb, JTT? Grammatical ones, I mean. Keep it simple, for those eager to learn, and also to avoid tripping yourself up.

@McTag,
I'll let you illustrate how this isn't McTag's usual delusionary maundering at play here.

After all it is "your" contention cribbed from one of your style manuals.
