STATE OF DELAWARE
WHEREAS, men in all parts of the world are giving thought to the preservation of the freedom of mankind and this freedom can be preserved only if it is based upon those understandings of man and his destiny which are shared by the great religions of our nation; and
WHEREAS, the maintenance of strong and courageous religious faith throughout our great nation is necessary if the nation is to properly perform the duties of leadership expected of it by all the world in these troubled times:
NOW, THEREFORE, I, Elbert N. Carvel, Governor of the State of Delaware, do hereby proclaim the period beginning Sunday, September 28 and continuing through Sunday, October 5, 1952, as the twenty-second annual
CHRISTIAN EDUCATION WEEK
and call attention to the fact that many communities in our State will hold inter-church services of thanksgiving and dedication for The Bible on Tuesday, September 30, the day of the first public appearance of the Revised Standard Version of The Bible, and hope that our people will remember that as religious faith is taught with zeal and understanding mankind will remain free.
IN WITNESS WHEREOF, I, Elbert N. Carvel, Governor of the State of Delaware, have hereunto set my hand and caused the Great Seal of the said State to be hereunto affixed at Dover this Twenty second day of September, in the Year of Our Lord, One Thousand Nine Hundred and Fifty-two, and of the Independence of the United States of America, the One Hundred and Seventy-seventh.
By the Governor:
ELBERT N. CARVEL
HARRIS B. McDOWELL, JR., Secretary of State.
