In accepting this volume I assure you that I do so with a full sense of appreciation of the deep regard which must actuate you in parting with the last copy of so valuable and interesting work, endeared as it is by the labor and association of early years.

Edward William Cornelius Humphrey (May 23, 1844 � March 22, 1917), also known as E.W.C. Humphrey, "Alphabet Humphrey," "Judge Humphrey," or "The Hon. E.W.C. Humphrey," was a theological and legal scholar and influential member of the National Presbyterian General Assembly.

A Harvard graduate with an honorary degree from Amherst, he was also an 1864 graduate of Centre College, of which he became a trustee in 1885. He was a trustee of the Louisville Presbyterian Theological Seminary and for forty-four successive terms was elected Director of the Louisville Law Library Company.

He was a leading key figure in a long discussion and eventual acceptance of a Presbyterian creed revision held in May 1902 in New York City by the national Presbyterian General Assembly, the Presbyterian denomination's highest governing body.
