- The Academy and literature: 1882 "I do not understand Mr. McCurdy's argument (p. 56) that, since only one symbol stood for the Hebrew f and P in the Phoenician alphabet, the two sounds must have been differentiated after the invention of the latter."
- The antiquity of Hebrew writing and literature: Alvin Sylvester Zerbe - 1911 "That the Hebrews at their migration to Egypt and subsequently were not the uncivilized horde of the Grafians, but somewhat advanced in the arts is a thesis defended by historians from Ewald to Kittel and McCurdy. ..."
