Governor Hughes issues New York Thanksgiving Day for Thursday, November 26, 1908.
Printed Document Signed: "Charles E. Hughes" as Governor of New York, 1p, 8½x12. Albany, New York, 1908 November 12. Countersigned: "Robert H. Fuller" as Secretary to the Governor. Headed: "Thanksgiving Proclamation/State of New York". In part: "In order that endeavor may be crowned with gratitude; That we may appropriately express our appreciation of the opportunities of liberty and peace, of our freedom from disorder, of abundant harvests, of the manifold benefits of industry, of the gains of science, and of the widening efforts of philanthropy...Now, therefore, to this end, I, Charles E. Hughes, Governor of the State of New York...do hereby appoint Thursday, the twenty-sixth day of November, in the year nineteen hundred and eight, as a day of General Thanksgiving." Charles E. Hughes was Governor of New York (1907-1910) when President Taft appointed him Associate Justice. In 1916, Hughes resigned from the Supreme Court having received the Republican nomination for President; he lost to Wilson. President Harding appointed him Secretary of State in 1921, and he remained in that office when Coolidge became President in 1923, staying until 1925. When Chief Justice Taft retired in 1930 because of ill health, President Hoover appointed Hughes as Chief Justice, only the second man reappointed to the Supreme Court (the first was John Rutledge). Hughes served until he retired in 1941. Fine condition.
