Anyone know what's up with the seemingly Random capitalization that Occurs in the US Constitution?
Think'st thou heaven is such a glorious thing?
I tell thee, 'tis not half so fair as thou
Or any man that breathes on earth.

I am not sure but it might have to be due to the fact that it was written before the standardization of spelling...???
