    Need explanation for elongated "s" & regular "s" in the word Congress

    Thomas Hilliard Newbie

      Explain the reason an elongated s is used beside a regular s in the word Congress in the Bill of Rights title.  A similar and perhaps related antiquated spelling convention occurs in the written script incised by T & C Clark on their 4 by 4 inch steel hinges.  Right after T & C Clark's is a word that I can't be sure of.but can read the capital Tari followed by two identical letters:elongated [maybe]  spelling Tariffs.  The English company was started in the 17 nineties  I tried to send  a jpg photo but it was temporally out of service. I can send the photo elsewhere if need be,  Thanks Tom.
