From Webster's Revised Unabridged Dictionary (1913) [web1913]:
   W \W\ (d[ucr]b"'l [umac]),
      the twenty-third letter of the English alphabet, is usually a
      consonant, but sometimes it is a vowel, forming the second
      element of certain diphthongs, as in few, how. It takes its
      written form and its name from the repetition of a V, this
      being the original form of the Roman capital letter which we
      call U. Etymologically it is most related to v and u. See V,
      and U. Some of the uneducated classes in England, especially
      in London, confuse w and v, substituting the one for the
      other, as weal for veal, and veal for weal; wine for vine,
      and vine for wine, etc. See Guide to Pronunciation,
      [sect][sect] 266-268.
