WHEREAS, dedicated members of our society, working through the National Conference of Christians and Jews and its affiliated regional units, annually invite all citizens to join with them in the month of February in observing Brotherhood Month and in practicing the principles of brotherhood; now

THEREFORE, I, J. CALEB BOGGS, Governor of the State of Delaware, do hereby proclaim the week of February 15-22, 1959, as
