Newspaper Supplement to the Federal Gazette (Baltimore), September 20, 1796, 1pp., VG. the top left commentary reads in full, “The first important article that strikes us is the resignation of the Father of America, his paternal address to his children, though lengthy, will appear in this Gazette in the morning.” The in a 1/2 column report from the Maryland Journal, in part “We read with the most sensible grief, a paragraph taken from a Philadelphia paper, that our old tried friend General Washington, the best, the most virtuous and the greatest man in the world, it were supposed from an association of circumstances, evidenced his intentions to resign, to retire to the calm and undisturbed walks of private life. Gracious heaven! How innumerable are the obligations which we owe to his unparrelleled services ... May the Angel of Heaven long preserve his life .. and when he is withdrawn from us by our God, he will be rewarded by an approving Heaven.”
