Moulton on Grammatical Gender

This also is a rather entertaining quote:

On Gender likewise there is not much to say. There are sundry differences in the gender of particular words; but even MGr is nearly as much under the domination of this outworn excrescence on language as was its classical ancestor. That English should still be almost the only European language to discard gender, indicating only distinction of sex, is exceedingly strange.
