Provincial laws are not custom, but the sovereign power. 5. If the sovereign of one state conquered people who lived before under the rule of written law, continues to operate under the same laws, and after the conquest, these laws are the civil laws of the winner, not the conquered state. For the legislator is not the one whose authority the law is published for the first time, and the one whose will it continues to be the law. So where in one state there are different provinces and the provinces have different laws, commonly called the customs of these provinces, we need to understand it's not as if these customs have their force because of its antiquity, but only so that they in ancient times were written law or in any other form of regulations and the installed declared sovereign of these provinces, and that they are now laws, not because consecrated by time, and by the decisions of the current sovereigns. But if some unwritten law is practiced equally in all provinces of a State, and this practice does not lead to any injustice, such a law is nothing more than a natural law, are equally binding the whole human race.
