STATE OF DELAWARE-EXECUTIVE DEPARTMENT-PROCLAMATION
On October 11th of this year we will observe the 167th anniversary of the death of Brigadier General Casimir Pulaski, one of America's truest friends in the struggle for liberty and independence.
The supreme sacrifice was General Pulaski's contribution to our Nation's cause, made at the siege of Savannah. For his devotion to America, his heroic acts on the field of battle, and the life he gave in the fight for our freedom, the people of America remain grateful and pay honor to his memory.
It is therefore eminently proper that we pay tribute to an illustrious friend and patriot, General Pulaski.
NOW, THEREFORE, I, Walter W. Bacon, Governor of the State of Delaware, by virtue of the laws of this State, do proclaim Friday, October 11, 1946, as
GENERAL PULASKI'S MEMORIAL DAY
and I urge that all Delawareans do honor to the memory of this great and heroic friend of America by holding and attending appropriate ceremonies in our churches, schools and other groups, and I request that the flag of our country be displayed on all public buildings and other suitable places.
IN TESTIMONY WHEREOF, I have set my hand and caused the Great Seal of the State of Delaware to be hereunto affixed at Dover, this seventh day of October in the year of our Lord one thousand nine hundred and forty-six, and of the Independence of the United States of America the one hundred and seventy-first.
By the Governor:
WALTER W. BACON
WILLIAM J. STOREY, Secretary of State.
