CHAPTER 317 - STATE OF DELAWARE EXECUTIVE DEPARTMENT PROCLAMATION

That the custom of our forefathers to acknowledge the obligation we owe to Almighty God by rendering to Him our grateful thanks as a Nation for blessings received upon a day characteristically American, set apart by decree of the President of the United States, shall be properly observed,

And with the thought that the people of our State are the happy recipients of many blessings bestowed by a Divine Providence,

I, C. D. BUCK, Governor of the State of Delaware, do designate

THURSDAY, NOVEMBER TWENTY-SIXTH AS

THANKSGIVING DAY

and urge upon our people to lay aside the perplexing problems of everyday life and resolve to give due regard to this day by attendance upon such service as may be held in accordance with our several beliefs.

IN TESTIMONY WHEREOF, I have hereunto subscribed my hand and caused the Great Seal of the State of Delaware to be hereunto affixed this fifteenth day of November in the year of our Lord one thousand nine hundred and thirty-six and of the Independence of the United States of America, the one hundred and sixty-first.

(Great Seal)

By the Governor:

C. D. BUCK.
