George Washington Consulted the Legal Treatise “Law of Nations”
Originally Written & Posted Online by CDR Kerchner@ Puzo1.BlogSpot.com: Friday, April 23, 2010 @ 11:27AM
An historical account from the times of what the newly sworn in President GeorgeWashington was doing with the legal treatise and reference book 
in NewYork in 1789.There was a news account recently that President George Washingtonborrowedthe legalreference book “Law of Nations or Principles of Natural Law” and never returned it tothe library in New York and now owes a huge past due fine on that book. This newcurrent events story ties into the importance of that book to George Washington and theother founders. Attached is an image and an account what the new President was doingwith the book in 1789 in New York. The new President was found consulting that book by visitors to his office during his early days and months in office after the inaugurationof him in New York in 1789.
 
 New York was then the capital of the USA. See attached highlighted section of thehistory book,This Was New York, The Nation’s Capital in 1789, by Monaghan &Lowenthal, published by Books for Libraries Press of Freeport NY. I have a copy of thisrare book. But it can also be viewed online at Google’s book site.The Law of Nations by Vattel is a very important legal treatiseand wasvery important tothe founding of our nation and writing the Constitution. It was first published in 1758.The Law of Nations is mentioned in ourConstitutionin Article I, Section 8. The “Law of Nations or Principles of Natural Law” which is its full name was the preeminent legaltreatise of the last half of the 1700s and wasdepended on heavily by the RevolutionaryPatriots in the founding of our nation. Benjamin Franklin cited that it was beingheavilyused during the Constitutional Conventionswhen he received three new copies of thenewest circa 1775 edition from the editor Dumas in Europe. And John Jay the 1st Chief Justice of the U.S. Supreme Court cited it often. This legal book was cited many times bythe various U.S. Supreme Courts in the 1800s and much of it became the common law of our land via Supreme Court decisions citing the wisdom conveyed in this book.And it is this legal treatise by Vattel which defines who the “naturel” citizens are, i.e., thenatural born Citizens”of a country, i.e., a person born in the country to two citizenparents of that country. This was the law of nature and Vattel codified it in his book Lawof Nations or Principles of Natural Law.This book was the source of the wisdom whichprompted John Jay to write to George Washington, presiding officer of the ConstitutionalConvention in the summer of 1787, and request that the requirement of “natural bornCitizenship” be put into the new Constitution as an eligibility standard for the office of the President and commander of the military, for future holders of that office after theoriginal generation past, to minimize any chances of foreign influences on that singularmost powerful office in our new nation.
