From Webster's Revised Unabridged Dictionary (1913) [web1913]:
   G \G\ (j[emac])
      1. G is the seventh letter of the English alphabet, and a
            vocal consonant. It has two sounds; one simple, as in
            gave, go, gull; the other compound (like that of j), as in
            gem, gin, dingy. See Guide to Pronunciation, [sect][sect]
            231-6, 155, 176, 178, 179, 196, 211, 246.
  
      Note: The form of G is from the Latin, in the alphabet which
               it first appeared as a modified form of C. The name is
               also from the Latin, and probably comes to us through
               the French. Etymologically it is most closely related
               to a c hard, k y, and w; as in corn, grain, kernel; kin
               L. genus, Gr. [?]; E. garden, yard; drag, draw; also to
               ch and h; as in get, prehensile; guest, host (an army);
               gall, choler; gust, choose. See {C}.
  
      2. (Mus.) G is the name of the fifth tone of the natural or
            model scale; -- called also {sol} by the Italians and
            French. It was also originally used as the treble clef,
            and has gradually changed into the character represented
            in the margin. See {Clef}. G[sharp] (G sharp) is a tone
            intermediate between G and A.
