I have no quaint answers for you on that one, but here is a good place to start:

King James Bible

Since Washington's Farewell Address is frequently totally misconstrued as to its meaning I wonder which false impression you are hanging your hat upon?

It is NOT a call to NEVER get involved in foreign affairs or an Isolationist policy. It WAS written to deter involvement with the French in European Wars as the Jeffersonians wished to do. Mainly it is a condemnation of Jeffersonians' foreign policies AND any thought of secession.
