Hi Jessica: I grew up in the 15th street Meeting, in NYC, where the oldest members, like Anna Curtis, still used plain speach, especially when making a point. As thee may remember from thy youth, our Friends did not often employ the old Shaksperian formula, there was a sort of Friend's plain speach that was slightly ... well more plain, I supose.
Merry Cristmass to thee and thyne -
