"Wheaton on Captures is a valuable Treatise, a work to which I freely confess my obligations." (Duer cited in Marvin). Wheaton [1785-1848] was a distinguished attorney, diplomat and author. "Mr. Wheaton's early familiarity with the jurisprudence and foreign relations of the United States, his long experience in diplomacy, his intimate acquaintance with European languages and foreign diplomatic writers, entitles his writings upon International Law to more than ordinary consideration. His works enjoy the highest reputation for the soundness of their views, and the learning and research displayed in illustrating the various topics discussed.": Marvin, Legal Bibliography (1847) 727-728.
