John Hancock's  Thanksgiving Day Proclamation.

hereas it is the incumbent duty of communities, as well as individual persons.... to recollect the innumerable blessings conferred upon them by their all gracious Father and Benefactor; and as the season of the year is now approaching when - in imitation of the example of our venerable forefathers - a day has been invariably set apart for this laudable and religious purpose:

I ... accordingly appoint Thursday, the twenty-fifth day of November next, to be observed as a day of public thanksgiving and praise throughout this Commonwealth, hereby calling upon ministers and people of every denomination to assemble on the said day and ... render to God the tribute of praise for His unmerited goodness towards us: in favoring us with so great a measure of health; in preserving us from desolating judgments; in so far smiling upon our trade, our liberty, and the works of our hands; ...[and] in continuing to us the innocent enjoyments of social life, the means of religion, the right of private judgment, and the Holy Scriptures - which are able to enlighten and make us wise to eternal salvation...

And... it is highly becoming that we present our humble and penitent supplications to the God of all grace that He would be pleased mercifully to forgive our manifold sins., and through the sanctifying influences of His Spirit, correct our heart and manners and make us a holy and happy people; that He would be pleased to preserve to us our invaluable rights and liberties, civil and religious; to prosper the administration of the government of the United States, and of this and other States in the Union;... to smile upon our university and all seminaries of learning so that streams may issue from them to make glad the city of our God; ... to put an end to civil and religious invasions on the rights of men; and to cause the benign religion of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ to be known, understood, and practiced among all the inhabitants of the earth... 
John Hancock
Signer of the Declaration of Independence and Governor of Massachusetts.
