My pledge

During the American Revolution, my ancestor Ebenezer Brittun of Westmoreland, New Hampshire, famously reässured his neighbors concerning the depreciation of American money:

I am not afraid of continental money; it will be redeemed in good time; redeemed or not redeemed, no soldier who has fought under George Washington shall go hungry while I have corn to feed him!


Today, as we come upon the celebration of Independence, American money again is losing its value, and in consequence I am making the exact same pledge as did Ebenezer Brittun.
