Whiston is a Historical interpreter and does a remarkable job of outlining the design and order of the book; seeing the 7 trumpets as part of the 7th seal and makes a clear case for the 7 Vials being a main part of the 7th trumpet. I think the following statementy is remarkable because of the time of his writing when these things have not been fulfilled and are yet in his future.
"""The Six first Seals, andthestx first Trumpets of the seventh Seal are all Over before the End of the 1260 years of Antichrist's Reign: and the seventh Trumpet or seven Vials contained in it follow immediately after that time;."
