I urge all Delawareans to avail themselves of the opportunity to visit and inspect those installations open during Highway Week and to participate, wherever possible, in the various special activities scheduled for this observance.
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 first day of April in the year of our Lord one thousand nine hundred and fifty-nine and of the Independence of the United States of America, the one hundred and eighty-third.
