Looking for Adolph Weinman handwriting samples- Cool newP

I won this on eBay for less than $10.00 (I was the only bidder) and it arrived today. I'm trying to determine if the address is written in his hand. I've looked at @Overdate 's Weinman Signature thread here and see similarities in the m's and n's. I also found this letter online: https://www.pbagalleries.com/view-auctions/catalog/id/429/lot/137712/Autograph-Letter-signed-from-Adolph-Weinman-designer-of-the-Liberty-dime-and-half-dollar-coins

I see similarities and differences. Again the m's and n's are nearly identical, and the 't' at the end of 'VT' on the envelope looks to match the 't' in 'Night' in the letter. My envelope is postmarked 1916, and the letter I linked to is from 1938, so it's possible Weinman's handwriting changed as he aged. I was hoping someone here may have a letter or copy of one from the teens so I can do some more comparisons. Thanks in advance!

Here's my envelope:
