DescriptionGentlemen of the Legislature:
The Chief Executive of our State having resigned, I have taken, in accordance with our Constitution, the oath of office as Governor.

Realizing the responsibilities of the trust I am assuming, I here and now dedicate myself anew to California.

Members of the Senate and Assembly, to you as well as to the Governor, the people look for conscientious, efficient, unselfish service. Working together we will not disappoint them.

Within a few days, I shall take the opportunity of communicating to you some suggestions concerning the State's welfare.

With your help, I shall endeavor to carry on and strengthen those sound governmental policies for which we have labored so long.
