A t this season of the year, it is an American
custom to devote a day to the giving o f thanks to
the Alm ighty for His boun ties;'to commemorate
the first season o f prosperity and plentitude.
On this day it is fitting and proper that we re
view the manifold blessings of the year just past;
that we offer true expressions o f gratitude for peace
This nation has been preserved through wars
and strife, that it has developed in all the arts and
sciences as well as in husbandry and commerce, that
it has known no year o f universal pestilence or fam
ine, should be constant sources o f joy to our people ;
we should be ever cognizant o f our good fortune and
pay homage to those first comers who so soundly
founded and carefully builded the structure o f our
national life. That we today stand a leader among
nations, supreme in the ways o f modern civilization,
is a tribute to those Pilgram Fathers whose first
Thanksgiving gives us inspiration today.
To help preserve the ideals of American sim
plicity and virtue and Christianity, the President of
these United States has proclaimed that a day be set
aside for the observance o f Thanksgiving, and in
conformity thereto, and by the authority in me vest
ed, I, I. L. Patterson, governor o f the state o f Ore
gon, do hereby proclaim and designate
®l]ur9bnu, Noiirnthcr 24, 1927
as Thanksgiving Day, and do hereby set aside as a
public holiday. I earnestly ask the citizens of this
great state to join together to observe in proper man
ner the season o f Harvest, of Peace and Good W ill,
that we turn our thoughts to the Alm ighty Father
who in His graciousness has given ug amply o f His
bounties, and that we display the American flag as
evidence o f our patriotic devotion to the founders
o f our nation
