The Thanksgiving as it occurs to
day dates from 18R4 whrn Presidjnt
Lincoln issued a proclamation for set
ting apart the last Thursday in No
ember of that year as a day of na
tional thanksgiving
Each succeeding president has an
nually proclaimed a thanksgiving day
which is generally foUow by similar
proclamations by tha governors of the
various states
Who makes the Thanksgiving proc
Tho president of the United States
How is it done
The president writes it out with his
own hand trying to pat in as much
of the spirit of the day as possible
This Is no easy task He must avoid
repeating expressions that have been
used by preceding presidents and yet
he must cover the same ground that
they cover When he has finished
writing it out it is copied and this
copy is sent to the state department
One of the clerks who is a good pen
man writes the proclamation artistic
ally on parchment The parchment s
then sent back to the White House
and the president signs it after that
it Is taken back to the stae depart
ment where the secretary of state
adds his name then the great seal of
the state department is affixed In
order to put the great seal on the
proclamation a note from the presi
dent Is necessary in whica he says
I hereby authorize and direct the sec
retary of state to cause the seal of the
United States to be affixed to my
Thanksgiving proclamation dated this
day and signed by me and for so
doing this shall be his warrant
What is lone with the proclamation
when It has been thus written and
A great many clerks In he state de
partment are then ordered to make
as many copies of the proclamation
as there are governors of states and
territories These copies are written
hy hand on long sneets of lue paper
The state department never uses the
typewriter or any other means except
artistic handwriting for making copies
of official correspondence
What do the different governors ol
the states do when they have receiv
ed their copies of the presidents proc
They then write special proclama
tions of their own announcing to the
people of their states the fact that the
president has fixed on such and such
a day for the observance of thanks
giving worsnip and festivities
