1 Boston Advertiser, March 16, 1848. Works, vol. II. pp. 63-73. Sumner, when in Paris in 1836, entertained the purpose of competing for a prize on the history of the law of nations since the Peace of Westphalia, which had been offered by the French Academy of Moral and Political Science, but his plan of travel interfered with his entering the competition. Mr. Wheaton, then in Paris, whom he had consulted as to his purpose, afterwards sent in a paper which became the basis of his ‘History of the Progress of the Law of Nations since the Peace of Westphalia.’ Letter of Sumner, Nov. 22, 1865, to S. A. Allibone, published in the latter's ‘Dictionary of Authors,’ title ‘Henry Wheaton,’ p. 2668.
