I've read elsewhere that they use it regularly, but I don't know if they
just use it just like we do "you", or if they retain the distinction.
My Webster's dictionary has, for "thee":
1. (Archaic or poetic) obj. sing. of thou
2. (Dial. and among Quakers) you
So, I guess they don't retain the distinction, since it doesn't say
anything about singular for that sense.
