From The Collaborative International Dictionary of English v.0.48:

Me \Me\ (m[=e]), pers. pron. [AS. m[=e], dat. & acc., mec, acc.
   only; akin to D. mij, G. mich, Icel. & Goth. mik, L. me, Gr.
   me`, 'eme`, Skr. m[=a], m[=a]m. [root]187. Cf. 2d Mine.]
   The person speaking, regarded as an object; myself; a pronoun
   of the first person used as the objective and dative case of
   the pronoum I; as, he struck me; he gave me the money, or he
   gave the money to me; he got me a hat, or he got a hat for
   me.
   [1913 Webster]

   Note: In methinks, me is properly in the dative case, and the
         verb is impersonal, the construction being, it appears
         to me. In early use me was often placed before forms of
         the verb to be with an adjective; as, me were lief.
         [1913 Webster]

               Me rather had my heart might frrl your love
               Than my unpleased eye see your courtesy. --Shak.
         [1913 Webster]
