Rare Presidential signature on a Thanksgiving Proclamation, 1928.
Rare Printed Proclamation signed: "Calvin Coolidge" as President, 1 page, 8x13. Washington, 1928 October 23. Countersigned in type: "Frank B. Kellogg" as Secretary of State. President Coolidge proclaims Thursday, November 29, 1928 "as a day of general thanksgiving and prayer...." In part: "The season again approaches when it has been the custom for generations to set apart a day of thanksgiving for the blessings which the Giver of all good and perfect gifts has bestowed upon us during the year. It is most becoming that we should do this, for the goodness and mercy of God which have followed us through the year deserve our grateful recognition and acknowledgment...our industries have flourished; our commerce has increased; wages have been lucrative, and comfort and contentment have followed the undisturbed pursuit of honest toil...." President George Washington set aside Thursday, November 26, 1789, to thank God for the newly formed government. The first national Thanksgiving Day proclamation was issued by President Abraham Lincoln. It was continued by every President until Franklin D. Roosevelt. Thanksgiving Day is now a federal legal public holiday observed every year on the fourth Thursday of November and no presidential proclamation is necessary. Two weeks after Coolidge issued his Thanksgiving Proclamation, his Secretary of Commerce, Herbert Hoover was elected as the nation's 31st President. Slightly creased. Fine condition.
