In the excellent My Thoughts Be Bloody, Nora Titone quotes from various letters written by John Wilkes Booth to illustrate his thoughts and opinions. JWB was, even for a nineteenth-century guy, a casual speller, and Titone feels the need to (sic) his misspellings. Which is certainly fine, but I find it curious that she only sics those that don't involve apostrophes. For example,
Banks will fail. Familys [sic] ruined. Poor widow's who want their little mite to raise their children, will point to the famished stricken forms of their dear infants."Widow's" is as much a misspelling as "familys", no?
