EXECUTIVE DEPARTMENT

PROCLAMATION

WHEREAS, during the past twelve months, this state and nation have been blessed with the abundance in the things we grow and make and use, and with full measure of employment and prosperity; and

WHEREAS, it is only fitting and proper that we pause--not one day, but daily--to give thanks to Almighty God for these many blessings; and

WHEREAS, it has been customary since the early days of this Great Republic to set aside one particular day for prayer and thanksgiving, and enjoyment with our loved ones, of God's bounty; now

THEREFORE, I, J. CALEB BOGGS, Governor of the State of Delaware, do hereby proclaim that Thursday, November 28, 1957, be observed as

THANKSGIVING DAY

and urge all our citizens to display national and state flags on this occasion, and humbly give thanks to the Almighty for the many blessings bestowed upon us.

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 Twenty-first day of November 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.

(GREAT SEAL)
