Hicks, Dictionary of American Biography V:347.

"Next to my wife, my library has been the source of my greatest pleasure and devoted attachment," he wrote in 1828. (DAB V:347). Included here are notes penned in some of his volumes. Of special interest are the notes that he wrote in Wollstonecraft's Rights of Woman and Tucker's Life of Jefferson. Marke, A Catalogue of the Law Collection at New York University (1953) 1103.
