GOVERNMENT PRINTING OPPICE

WASHINGTON

1948

By the President of the United States of America

A Proclamation To the People of the United States: It has pleased God in His infinite wisdom to take from us the immortal

spirit of

Franklin Delano Roosevelt

the Thirty-second President of the United States. The leader of his people in a great war, he lived to see the assurance

of the victory but not to share it. He lived to see the first foundations of the free and peaceful world to which his life was dedicated, but not to enter on that world himself. This fellow countrymen will sorely miss his fortitude and faith and 7 courage in the time to come. The peoples of the earth who love the ways of freedom and of hope

will mourn for him. But though his voice is silent, bis courage is not spent, bis faith is not

no extinguished. The courage of great men outlives them to become the courage of their people and the peoples of the world. It lives beyond them and upholds their purposes and brings their hopes to pass.

Aow, therefore, J, Harry S. Truman, President of the United S States of America, do appoint Saturday next, April 14ta, the day of the funeral service for the dead President, as a day of mourning and prayer through out the United States. I earnestly recommend the people to assemble on that day in their respective places of divine worship, there to bow down in submission to the will of Almighty God and to pay out of full hearts their homage of love and reverence to the memory the great and good man whose death they mourn. Tin witness whereof I have bereunto set my hand and caused the seal of the United States to be affixed.

Done at the City of Washington, the 13th day of

April, in the year of our Lord, one thousand nine hundred (BBAL}

and forty-five, and of the independence of the United States, the one hundred and sixty ninth,
