Excerpt from Intemperance Admiral Sir W. King-hall, when in command Of h.m.s. Russell, at Falmouth, in the presence Of his ship's company, read out the punishments of the past year, which showed that more than two-thirds Of the Offences arose from drink. He then said I know nothing of temperance work, but you see all this disgrace, and punishment, and misery is due to drink. If we give it up, this cannot happen. He gave it up, and was followed by large numbers Of his men, who remained true to their promises.
