About Charles Griffin Coffin

The family of Charles Griffin Coffin signed a temperance pledge at Easton, N. Y., in 1838. As it contains the names and addresses of so many members of his family the text and signatures are given in full:

    "We the undersigned, heads of families, do agree that we will not use intoxicating liquors as a beverage nor traffic in them; neither will we provide them as an article of entertainment or for persons in our employ, and in all suitable ways we will induce our children and relatives, and those under our care to adopt this Pledge; the object of which is, the mutual benefit of us who are parents of guardians, that by our combined efforst we may more readily impress upon the minds and consciences of our children and those under our care, the importance of total abstinence from everything that intoxicates. In thus pledging ourselves we look to God in fervent prayer that none of our children and friends may become victims of intemperance and finally find a drunkard's grave; but that by the blessing of Heaven they may become heirs of Eternal Life. We do further pledge ourselves to converse in our families from time to time on the subject, and to provide as far as we are able, temperance publications for our children and members of our families.
