Proclamation Concerning President McKinley

 

STATE OF NEW YORK

Executive Chamber                     

Albany, January 16, 1902    

TO THE PEOPLE OF THE STATE OF NEW YORK:

     His Excellency George K. Nash, the Governor of Ohio, has suggested that Wednesday, January twenty-ninth, the birthday of the late President McKinley, be fittingly observed by the people of the United States.
     In this suggestion I concur and recommend that in the schools of our State suitable exercises be held and that the flags be displayed upon public and private buildings, thus honoring the character and services of one whose death we so recently mourned.

B. B. ODELL, JR.
