STATE OF DELAWARE
WHEREAS, many of our citizens are afflicted by the disease known as diabetes, and others who may have symptoms of the disease are not aware of that fact; and
WHEREAS, the Medical Society of Delaware has requested me to set aside one week in which to call attention to the plight of diabetics; and
WHEREAS, medical physicians and medical hospitals this week are offering to give free tests to those people who may feel they have diabetic symptoms; now
THEREFORE, I, J. CALEB BOGGS, Governor of the State of Delaware, do hereby set aside the week of November 11 to 17, 1956, as
DIABETIC DETECTION WEEK
I trust that our citizens will avail themselves of the opportunities offered this week in seeking diagnoses if they believe they may have contracted the disease, and I heartily endorse the work of our Medical Society of Delaware in this field.
IN WITNESS WHEREOF, I, J. Caleb Boggs, 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 Ninth day of November in the year of Our Lord One thousand nine hundred and fifty-six and of the Independence of the United States of America, the one hundred and eighty-first.
J. CALEB BOGGS, Governor
JOHN N. McDOWELL, Secretary of State
