STATE OF DELAWARE
WHEREAS, the pharmacists in the State of Delaware devote long and tedious hours in serving the public and always perform diligently in their profession; and
WHEREAS, the lives of our citizens often depend on their skills in preparing and interpreting prescriptions recommended by physicians which must be precisely followed; and instructions for administering drugs and medicines must meet exactly with the orders from the patient's doctor; and
WHEREAS, the aforementioned pharmacists strive through constant education and organized effort to maintain and improve the high standards which they have set for their profession; now
THEREFORE, I, J. CALEB BOGGS, Governor of the State of Delaware, do hereby proclaim that the week of October 7 to 14, 1957, be observed as
PHARMACY WEEK IN DELAWARE
I call upon our citizens to reflect upon the many instances when these men and women have served so faithfully to better the physical, mental and moral status of our people. Let us renew our efforts during this week to better appreciate the services rendered by our pharmacists to physicians, hospitals and the general public and take note of the unselfish devotion with which they follow their chosen profession.
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 Nineteenth day of September in the year of Our Lord One thousand nine hundred and fifty-seven and of the Independence of the United States of America, the one hundred and eighty-second.
