ticn For a Day.
Washington, November i.-The
president today issued the Thanksgiv
ing day proclamation, setting aside
Thursday, November 24, "to be ob
served as a day of festival and
Thanksgiving by all the people of the
United States at home and abroad."
The proclamation reads:
"By the President of the United
States of America-A Proclama
"It has pleased Almighty God to
bring the American people in safety
and honor through another year, and
in accordance with long unbroken
custom handed down to us by our
forefathers, the time has come when
a special day shall be set apart in
which to thank Him who holds all
nations in the hollow of His hand for
the mercies thus vouchsafed to us.
"During the century and a quarter
of, our national life we as a people
have been blessed beyond all others,
and for this we owe our heartfelt
thanks to the*Author of all blessings.
The year that has closed has been
one of peace within our own borders,
as well as between us and all other
"The harvests have been abundant,
and those who work, whether with
hand or brain, are prospering greatly.
Reward has waited upon honest ef
fort. We have been enabled to do
our duty to ourselves and to others.
Never has there been a time when re
ligious and charitable effort has been
more evident. Much has been given
to us and much will be expected from
us.! We speak of what has been done
by this nation in no spirit of boast
fulness or vain glory, but with full and
reverent realization that our strength
is as nothing unless we are helped
from above. Hitherto we have been
given the heartiest strength to do the
tasks allotted to us as they severally
"We are thankftl for all that has
Seen done for us in the past, and we
pray that in the future we may be
strengthened in the active struggle
in our duty fearlessly and honestly
with charity and good will, with re
spect for ourselves and with love to
ward our fellowmen. In this great
republic the effort to combine nation
a! strength with personal freedom is
being tried on a scale more gigantic
than ever before in the world's his
tory. Our success will mean much,
not only for,ourselves, but for the fu
ture of all mankind; and every man
or woman in our land should feel
the grave responsibility resting upon
him or her, for in the last analysis
this success must depend upon the
high average of our individual cit
izenship, upon the way in which each
of us does hs duty by himrself and his
"Now, therefore, I, Theodore Roos
evelt, president of the United States,
do hereby appoint and set apart
Thursday, the 24th of this November,
to be observed as a day of festival
and thangsgiving by all the people of
the United States, at home or abroad,
and do recommend that on that day
they cease from their ordinary occu
pations and gather -in their several
places of worship or in their homes,
devoutly to give thanks unto Al
mighty God for the benefits He has
conferred upon us as individuals and
as a nation, and to beseechs Him that
in the future His divine favor may be
continued to us.
"In witness whereof, I have here
unto set my hand and caused the seal
of the United States to be affixed.
"Done at the city of Washington,
this first day of November, in the year
of our Lord one thousand nine hun,
dred and four, and of the indepen
dence of the United States one hun
dred and twenty-ninth.

'JOHN HAY, Secretary of State."
