STATE OF DELAWARE
It has been the custom, since the early days of our country, to give thanks and praise for the blessings received during the year on a day typically American in character, set apart by decree of the President of the United States, and
In keeping with the thought that the people of our State are the grateful recipients of many blessings bestowed by a Divine Providence, I, Richard C. McMullen, Governor of the State of Delaware, do hereby proclaim the day appointed by our President
THURSDAY, NOVEMBER TWENTY-FIFTH, 1937
AS THANKSGIVING DAY
and ask the citizens of our State to lay aside the troubles of everyday life and show due respect to the day by attending such services as may be held in accordance with our various beliefs.
IN TESTIMONY WHEREOF, I, Richard C. McMullen, Governor of the State of Delaware, have hereunto set my hand and caused the Great Seal of this State to be hereunto affixed this Sixteenth day of November,
(Great Seal) in the year of our Lord one thousand nine hundred and thirty-seven, and of the Independence of the United States of America, the one Hundred and sixty-second.
By the Governor:
RICHARD C. McMULLEN
