    On Ap , George Washington took the oath of office as the first president of the United States. He delivered his first inaugural address to a joint session of Congress, assembled in Federal Hall in the nation's new capital, New York City. With one exception, his first inaugural address did not contain specific policy recommendations. So by the time of the Buttonwood Agreement and the relocation of the Bank of New York, the U.S. government had already been gone from New York City for a couple of years. The connection to the financial industry would not have been in the minds of Americans at the time of Washington's inauguration, nor would Wall Street have held any. On Ap , George Washington left his home at Mount Vernon to travel to New York City to be inaugurated as the first President of the United States. He was accompanied by Charles Thomson, the secretary of Congress, and Colonel David Humphreys, Washington’s longtime friend and secretary.
