I've been reading a book called "Letters from Grandmother Agnes", which is in fact a bunch of letters from a English inmigrant in Buenos Aires to her father and sister in London. The letters go from c.1870 to c.1895. Everytime Agnes writes thanks to God or anything like that, God is between inverted commas.
Does anybody know why should she write it thus?
Her granddaughter gives two possible explanations: it was either because she didn't believe in Him or in order not to "take His name in vain" (???, anyway, the second command). Any idea?
