In a phonemic spelling they would be written in the same way.

Incidentally George himself pronounces the Cornish word for 'lord'
with a short unstressed [U] and a voiceless final segment,
i.e. exactly as does KS with its <arlùth>.  I suspect that most
speakers (of whatever school) have a voiceless th in this word.
Moreover Lhuyd spells the spoken Cornish form as <arleth> with a
voiceless final.
Why then does the SWF
write <arludh> with a voiced final?
