Nice cover from a small place in Poland

Posted in Tsekhotsink postal otdelenie, Warsaw gub, Neshava uezd, serial 1 on 23 June 1889.

Addressed to Stettin. Arrival mark on back.

Franked with the 1-, 2-, and 3-kop stamps of 1883-88 (Scott #s 31-33) and the 4-kop stamp from the 14 May 1889 issue. Unfortunately, it is not the inverted background variety. The stamps were placed in a beautiful square pattern.

Can someone add to our knowledge about this cover?

No knowledge to add, just another question:

What, if any, is the significance of the change in handwriting and pen in the first line on the back?

Unfortunately, nothing to add. Ordinary mail, the fee for foreign mailing 10 kop.
