On the territorial seal
the Territory is spelled "Missisippi." This has been cited as
an error. On the other hand, the Oxford English Dictionary cites the
spelling "Missisipee" in 1728, and "Missisippi" in 1777, so it
appears to be a customary spelling of the time. If it is an
error it is an error of those who originally created the territorial
seal for it is spelled this way there.
