Preamble.

According to the yearly custom of our people, it falls upon the President at this season to appoint a day of festival and thanksgiving to God.

Over a century and a quarter has passed since this country took its place among the nations of the earth, and during that time we have had on the whole more to be thankful for than has fallen to the lot of any other people. Generation after generation has grown to manhood and passed away.

Each has had to bear its peculiar burdens, each to face its special crises, and each has known years of grim trial, when the country was menaced by malice domestic or foreign levy, when the hand of the Lord was heavy upon it in drouth or food or pestilence, when in bodily distress and anguish of soul it paid the penalty of folly and a froward heart. Nevertheless, decade by decade, we have struggled onward' and upward; we now abundantly enjoy material well-being, and under the favor of the Most High we are striving earnestly to achieve moral and spiritual uplifting. The year that has just closed has been one of peace and of overflowing plenty. Rarely has any people enjoyed greater prosperity than we are now enjoying. For this we render heartfelt and solemn thanks to the

[ocr errors]

deeds, by the way in which we do our duty to ourselves and to our
fellow men.

Now, therefore, I, THEODORE ROOSEVELT, President of the United Thursday, Novem
States, do hereby designate as a day of general thanksgiving Thurs: as a day of national

thanksgiving
day, the twenty-seventh of the coming November, and do recommend
that throughout the land the people cease from their ordinary occupa-
tions, and in their several homes and places of worship render thanks
unto Almighty God for the manifold blessings of the past year.

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 Washington this 29th day of October, in the

year of our Lord one thousand nine hundred and two and
