Ref. Collier's Encyclopedia 1954 Book 19 page 357: 

Washington’s letter published in Claypoole’s “American Daily Adventure” Philadelphia 1796 published a contribution to the people of the United States and addressed to “Friends and fellow Citizens” signed George Washington.

The first president of the United states thus gave his farewell address to the people. The main purpose was to eliminate himself from the third presidential election which was something he had been unable to do at the end of his first term because of the political pressure and the critical state of American foreign relations. But Washington was not content merely to decline to be a candidate for re-election.

A concern for the public welfare and the apprehension of danger urged him to present his conviction on the necessity for a strong union of states and a statement of the principles upon which permanent domestic peace and order could be maintained and foreign respect compelled. Among other things he urged the practice of religion and morality and the support of the public credit. He urged the wisdom of “as little political connection as possible” with “foreign nations” and he addressed the people and their representatives to steer clear of permanent alliances with any portion of the foreign world, trusting to temporary alliances only for extraordinary emergencies. 

Washington closed his farewell address with a brief justification for his proclamation of neutrality toward France and England (April 22,1793). He declined the presidency because of his desire to retire. This set a two term presidency which continues today. the spirit and the substance of his final address were Washington’s but Hamilton and Madison added suggestions to be incorporated at Washington’s discretion  in the finished address.
