Writing in capitals only ..hum?

Holly ( who loves to look up these things ) tells me Cromwell only wrote in capitals and she now thinks he'd have used green ink had it been available .This is all part of his mania , David Starkey is pretty sure he had manic-depression and or bi-polar syndrome. There is a wonderful scene in "To Kill A King" in which he storms down a long room and shouts at the King then slams the lid of his virginals down ..on 2x this looks like he has just Madge's fingers in the lid ( Madge being His Maj. ) We love to imagine what else he might have done ...thrown his 10 volume set of Romantic novels on the fire ..yes honestly he had them but more in the Romantic lit as in Knights and maidens stuffie .
