    Description

    [George Washington's Farewell Address.] Newspaper: Federal Gazette & Baltimore Daily Advertiser. Four pages, 12" x 19.5", September 21, 1796. This very important newspaper account of President Washington's farewell address is six and one-half columns long, almost two complete pages (the center spread), and contains President Washington's final thoughts as president on American political values. It is addressed "To the People of the United States: Friends and Fellow Citizens." The address, written with the aid of Alexander Hamilton, was never delivered as an address or speech; instead, it was crafted as an open letter to be published in newspapers such as the Federal Gazette in the early fall of 1796. The address is signed in print, "G. Washington. United States, 17th Sept. 1796." Toned.
