Have a happy Thanksgiving. Here's Abraham Lincoln's proclamation
establishing it as a day of thanks and praise. ... FYI: There's no mention of Pilgrims and Indians. Someone let the NYT know, for one of its brilliant writers thinks the 'premise of Thanksgiving might be a lie.'
... FYI II: Reading the proclamation, I thought its prose was a tad bit flowery for Abe. Then I read
William Seward likely wrote it and Lincoln signed it. No matter. Enjoy your day! ...
