STATE OF DELAWARE
WHEREAS, the observance of Good-Will Day is wise and timely, as the date selected, May 18th, has for some time been observed as commemorating the anniversary of the first Peace Conference at the Hague.
During the troubled state of the World, it is more than ever important that we give heed to the old adage that peace comes to men of good-will.
If good-will is established, human welfare and happiness will result.
I, THEREFORE, Richard C. McMullen, Governor of Delaware, designate the month of May, 1938, as
and do proclaim May 18th, as Good-Will Day, and urge the people of our State to give it proper observance in churches, schools, fraternal organizations, in the homes and other institutions, to develop a sense of peace and unity among our people, thus preparing for the establishment of world peace through mutual good-will and better understanding.
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 affixed this Sixth Day of May, in the year of
(Great Seal) our Lord One Thousand Nine Hundred and Thirty-eight, and of the Independence of the United States of America, the One Hundred and Sixty-second.
By the Governor:
RICHARD C. McMULLEN.
CHARLES L. TERRY, JR., Secretary of State.
