PROCLAMATIONS.

MOTHER'S DAY PROCLAMATION. The progress of the times is continually giving rise to new thoughts and new ideas. Influences of this character which encourage a people to work for higher ideals tend to increase the usefulness, promote the happiness and develop the best that is in the human race.

The strength of a nation is measured by the character of its women and it is no idle sentiment for a people to encourage in every possible manner, respect and admiration for true womanhood.

The movement having for its object the observance of Mother's Day which has been spreading with great rapidity throughout the civilized world, has resulted in the setting apart a special day, upon which each individual is asked to perform some act in celebration and commemoration of the mothers of the land.

I, Charles R. Miller, Governor of the State of Delaware, do hereby designate that

Sunday, the Eleventh day of May, A. D. 1913,
shall be known and designated as

MOTHER'S DAY;

and do request that this day be observed by all individuals, societies and organizations, religious or otherwise, by the performance of some act to commemorate the mothers of mankind.

IN TESTIMONY WHEREOF, I, Charles R. Miller, Governor of the State of Delaware, have hereunto set my hand and caused the Great Seal
