From Webster's Revised Unabridged Dictionary (1913) [web1913]:
   E \E\ ([emac]).
      1. The fifth letter of the English alphabet.
      Note: It derives its form, name, and value from the Latin,
               the form and value being further derived from the
               Greek, into which it came from the Ph[d2]nician, and
               ultimately, probably, from the Egyptian. Its
               etymological relations are closest with the vowels i,
               a, and o, as illustrated by to fall, to fell; man, pl.
               men; drink, drank, drench; dint, dent; doom, deem;
               goose, pl. geese; beef, OF. boef, L. bos; and E. cheer,
               OF. chiere, LL. cara.
      Note: The letter e has in English several vowel sounds, the
               two principal being its long or name sound, as in eve,
               me, and the short, as in end, best. Usually at the end
               of words it is silent, but serves to indicate that the
               preceding vowel has its long sound, where otherwise it
               would be short, as in m[be]ne, c[be]ne, m[emac]te,
               which without the final e would be pronounced m[acr]n,
               c[acr]n, m[ecr]t. After c and g, the final e indicates
               that these letters are to be pronounced as s and j;
               respectively, as in lace, rage. See Guide to
               Pronunciation, [sect][sect] 74-97.
      2. (Mus.) E is the third tone of the model diatonic scale.
