PROCLAMATIONS OF THE

GOVERNOR

PRINTED IN ACCORDANCE WITH PROVISIONS OF CHAPTER 10 OF THE

REVISED STATUTES OF 1915

PROCLAMATION

STATE OF DELAWARE,

EXECUTIVE DEPARTMENT.

Inasmuch as the loyal citizens of Delaware have consistently done everything within their power to bring to our beloved country that victory which we have so recently won,

I, John G. Townsend, Jr., Governor of the State of Delaware, do now proclaim that every State office be directed and every person within the State of Delaware be requested from this day forward until the tenth day of May to display the American Flag and such other flags of the Allies as he may possess, in honor of the victory achieved by our Country, and in aid of the Victory Liberty Loan.

It is meet and proper that we should fling out our banners far and wide. God's will has been done. Right has again conquered might. The thing which we prayed for is that which must now be paid for.

Every home, every place of business, every church and PROCLAMATIONS

every school building, should display those colors which are em blematical of American efforts to make the world a better place to live in. We thus help the workers who are organized to distribute the Loan among the greatest number of people, and we again remind ourselves of the joyful opportunity of subscribing to this truly great Thanksgiving Loan, which brings so many of our lads home and honors those whose death has so consecrated the fields of France.

IN TESTIMONY WHEREOF, I, John G. Townsend, Jr.,

Governor of the State of Delaware, have hereunto set my hand and caused the Great Seal of

this State to be hereunto affixed this twenty[GREAT SEAL] third day of April, in the year of our Lord, one

thousand nine hundred and nineteen, and of the Independence of the United States of America, the one hundred and forty-third.

By the Governor:

JOHN G. TOWNSEND, JR. EVERETT C. JOHNSON,

Secretary of State.

PROCLAMATIONS

PROCLAMATION

STATE OF DELAWARE,

EXECUTIVE DEPARTMENT.

We in America learned long ago to esteem the work of the Salvation Army and to perceive the greatness and the beauty of its service to the poor, the unprotected and the forlorn in all the byways of civilization. This mighty body of consecrated workers moved our people to an affectionate regard by the nature of its service on the battlefields in France. Its members carried a passion for Christian service and sacrifice to the trenches, through the fire, wherever men were hurt or unhappy or in want. They were brothers and sisters to our absent men. The highest tribute to their zeal has come from other devoted men and women in the Red Cross, Y. M. C. A., the Knights of Columbus and the Jewish Welfare Board with whom they co-operated.

THE SALVATION ARMY now proposes to extend its service in the United States and to contribute the inspiration of its great purpose to the times ahead. In the week beginning May 19 this great Army of Service will go before the American people with an appeal for financial aid and support. It has always given more than it has received. Its cause is one which I deem worthy of the confidence and support of all our people.

THEREFORE, I, John G. Townsend, Jr., Governor of the State of Delaware do cordially commend the Salvation Army and call upon our people to give earnest heed to its call for assistance to make liberal donations to its praiseworthy work that we may thus make manifest a resolute purpose to give unstinted aid and support gladly to all those noble and self-sacrificing agencies which under God, give help and hope to all who may be in need. And in furtherance of this movement I proclaim Sunday, May
