PROCLAMATION

WHEREAS, interdependence of citizens living in the city and those dwelling on farms has been recognized by the Congress of the United States, and cognizance has been taken of the one group's need for the other; and

WHEREAS, were it not for the cooperative spirit which prevails through this interdependence, the United States of America would not enjoy the enviable prosperity which is prevalent today; and

WHEREAS, it has been the recommendation of the Congress of the United States that all municipalities extend cordial greetings to their farm people in an effort to encourage closer relationship between them; now

THEREFORE, I, J. CALEB BOGGS, Governor of the State of Delaware, do hereby declare and proclaim that the period of November 19 through 22, 1956, inclusive be marked as

FARM-CITY WEEK IN DELAWARE

I call upon our citizens to join in this observance and stage such joint gatherings which will serve the purpose of furthering relations between our urban and farm populations.

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 Fourteenth 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.
