Best Answer

The "misspellings" are a result of the fluid nature of the English written language, and its script forms, through the 18th century.

- The word "insure" is used instead of the modern variant ensure.

- The word "defence" still used the British English spelling (later US defense)

- The word "blessings" uses the prominent "Ss" calligraphic form.


We the People of the United States, in Order to form a more perfect Union, establish Justice, insure domestic Tranquility, provide for the common defence, promote the general Welfare, and secure the Blessings of Liberty to ourselves and our Posterity, do ordain and establish this Constitution for the United States of America.
