CHAPTER 318 - STATE OF DELAWARE - EXECUTIVE DEPARTMENT PROCLAMATION
WHEREAS, the New York World's Fair commemorating the One Hundred and Fiftieth Anniversary of the inauguration, on April 30th, 1789, of George Washington as the first President of these United States and the establishment of the Federal Government in the City of New York, chosen as the first Capitol of our Nation, and
WHEREAS, the State of Delaware has always had an active part in events pertaining to the establishment of our country and being the first State to ratify the Constitution of which we are justly proud, and which we celebrate on September 17th, therefore, it is quite appropriate that a day be set aside as Delaware Day at the Fair, in honor of our State, and
THEREFORE, I request and urge that our citizens cooperate with the Wilmington Chamber of Commerce and the Delaware Advisory Committee in attending the New York World's Fair on
September 12, 1939
so that the excellent program prepared may be enjoyed by all and proper appreciation shown by the number of Delawareans in attendance.
IN TESTIMONY WHEREOF, I, Richard C. McMullen, Governor of the State of Delaware, have here unto set my hand and caused The Great Seal of this State to be affixed this First day of September, in the year of our Lord One Thousand Nine Hundred and Thirty-Nine, and of the Independence of the United States of America, the One Hundred and Sixty-fourth.
By the Governor:
RICHARD C. McMULLEN
JOSIAH MARVEL, JR., Secretary of State.
