A PROCLAMATION.

Preamble.

THE time of year has come when, in accordance with the wise custom of our forefathers, it becomes my duty to set aside a special day of thanksgiving and praise to the Almighty because of the blessings we have received, and of prayer that these blessings may be continued. Yet another year of widespread well-being has past

. Never before in our history or in the history of any other nation has a people enjoyed more abounding material prosperity than is ours; a prosperity so great that it should arouse in us no spirit of reckless pride, and least of all a spirit of heedless disregard of our responsibilities; but rather a sober sense of our many blessings, and a resolute purpose, under Providence, not to forfeit them by any action of our own.

Material well-being, indispensable tho it is, can never be anything but the foundation of true national greatness and happiness. If we build nothing upon this foundation, then our national life will be as meaningless and empty as a house where only the foundation has been laid. Upon our material well-being must be built a superstructure of individual and national life lived in accordance with the laws of the highest morality, or else our prosperity itself will in the long run turn out a curse instead of a blessing. We should be both reverently thankful for what we have received, and earnestly bent upon turning

it into a means of grace and not of destruction. Thursday, NO

Accordingly I hereby set apart Thursday, the twenty-ninth day of vember 29, 1906, set apart as a day November, next, as a day of thanksgiving and supplication, on which givning.onal thanks. the people shall meet in their homes or their churches, devoutly

acknowledge all that has been given them, and to pray that they may in addition receive the power to use these gifts aright.

IN WITNESS WHEREOF I have hereunto set my hand and caused the seal of the United States to be affixt. Done at the City of Washington this 22d day of October, in the

year of our Lord one thousand nine hundred and six [SEAL.] and of the independence of the United States the one hundred and thirty-first.
