Excerpt from Draft Outlines of an International Code
The scheme embraced not only a codification of existing rules of internationallaw, but the suggestion of such modi fications and improvements as the more matured civilization of the present age should seem to require. The purpose was to bring together whatever was good in the present body of public law, to' leave out what seemed obsolete, unprofitable or hurtful, and then to add such new provisions as seemed most desirable. The-code, which the Association would propose, is such an one as should win the commendation of good and wise men, for international regulations, in the in terests of humanity and peace. With the view of aiding in the formation of such a Code, the present work has been um dertaken. What in it is old will generally be found ex plained and justified by the notes what in it is new is sug gested for the consideration of those, who think that much may yet be done by the authority of public law, for the peace and prosperity of the world.
