Says Our Prosperity Is Unequalled
in History of Any Other Nation,
The text of the president's
Thanksgiving proclamation is
sued Tuesday is as follows:
"The time of the year has
come when in accordance with
the wise custom of our fathers it
becomes my duty to set aside a
special day of thanksgiving and
praise to the Almighty because
of blessings we have received and
of prayer that these blessings
may be continued. Yet another
year of widespread well being
has passed. Never before in our
history and in the history of any
other nation has a people enjoyed
more abounding material prospe
rity than is ours, a prosperity so
great that it should arouse in us
no spirit of reckless pride and
least oi all a spirit of reckless re
gard of our responsibilities but
rather a sober sense of our many
blessings and resolute purpose.
under Providence, not to forfeit
them under any action of our
"Material well being, indispen
sible though it is, can never be
anything but the foundation for
true national greatness and happi
ness. It 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 individ
ual and national life lived in ac
cordance with the law of the
highest morality or else our pros
perity in itself will in the long
run turn a curse instead of a
blessing. We should be both rev
erently thankful for what we
have received and earnestly bent
on turning it into a means of
grace and not of destruction.
"Accordingly, I hereby set
aside Thursday, the 2'th day of
November next, as the day of
thanksgiving and supplication
upon which the people shall meet
in tlieir homes or church devoutly
to acknowledge all that has been
given them and to pray that
they may in addition receive
the power to use these gifts
"In witness whereof I have
hereunto set my hand and caused
the seal of the United States
to be affixed.
"Done at the city of Washing
ton this twenty-second day of
October in the year of our Lord
one thousand nine hundred. and
six and of the independence of
the United States the one
hundred and thirty-first.

Secretary of State.
