     Note: The form of G is from the Latin, in the alphabet which

           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

           gall, choler; gust, choose. See C.
