Excerpts from George Washington’s 1789 Thanksgiving Proclamation

“Whereas it is the duty of all nations to acknowledge the providence of Almighty God, to obey His will, to be grateful for His benefits, and humbly to implore His protection and favor;…

“Now, therefore, I do recommend and assign Thursday, the 26th day of November next, to be devoted by the people of these States to the service of that great and glorious Being who is the beneficent author of all the good that was, that is, or that will be;…

“…for all the great and various favors which He has been pleased to confer upon us.”

Given under my hand, at the city of New York, the 3d day of October, A.D. 1780.

(signed) G. Washington
