Governor Pollock has issued the following
Proclamation, appointing Thursday, the 26th
of November, as a day of general Thanks
giving and Praise, in this State:
in the name and by Ihe authority of the Com
monwealth of Pennsylvania, JAMES POLLOCK,
Gotfi nor of the said Conrneesssealth:
fellow-Citizens: —To tender to Almighty
God, who controls the destinies of nations
and men, the homage of devout gratitude
and praise for his goodness and mercy, is
the appropriate and solemn duty of a free
and highly favored people. As the giver of
every good and perfect gift we should ever
recognize His hand in our mercies, and ac
knowledge our dependence upon His Prov
idence ; and although adversity may throw
its dark shadows across our pathway, yet
we should be asured of this, "that the Judge
of all Earth will do right."
During the past year the bounties of a
kind Providence have not been withheld
from our Commonwealth. Our free institu
tions have been preserved, and our rights
and privileges, civil and religious, enjoyed
and maintained. The arts and sciences,
and the great interests of education, morali
ty and religion, have claimed attention and
received the encouragement of an intelli
gent and liberal people. Honorable industry
in its varied departments has been reward
ed ; and although recent and severe finan
cial revulsion has filled with gloom, sorrow
and distress, the hearts and homes of many
of our citizens, yet no lear of famine, no
dread of impending public or social calami
ty, mingles with our emotions of gratitude
for past blessings, or weakens our trust for
the future, in the Providences of Him who
wounds but to heal, and "whose mercy en
dureth forever." A plenteous harvest has
crowned the labor of the husbandman—
peace, with its gentle and refining influen
ces, and unwonted health with its benefits
and mercies, have been vouchsafed to us.
In acknowledgment of those manifold
blessings, we should offer unto God thanks
giving and pay our vows unto the most High;
and call upon Him "in the day of trouble;
He will deliver thee and thou shall glorify
Under the solemn conviction of the propri
ety of this duty, and in conformity with es
tablished custom and the wishes of many
good citizens, I, Jaincs Pollock, Governor of
the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania, do
hereby recommend Thursday, the Iwenty
■ixth day of November next, as a day of gen
eral thanksgiving and praise throughout this
State, and earnestly request the people that,
abstaining from their usual avocations and
all worldly pursuits, they assemble on that
day according to their religious customs, and
mite in offering thanks to Almighty God for
his past goodness and mercies; and while
humbly acknowledging our tlmngressiou,
and imploring His forgiveness, beseech
Him, with sincere and earnest desire, to re
turn and visit us again with His loving kind
ness. make us worthy of His bounties, and
continue to us the rich blessings of His prov
idence and grace.
Given under my hand and the Great Seal of
the State at Harrisburg, this nineteenth
day of October, in the year of our Lord one
thousand eight hundred and fifty-seven,
