ken up by the related families,—so that through connections by kin or friendship nearly all the society was likely to take a part. For instance, the Ticknor, Eliot, Dwight, Guild, and Norton families were connected by marriage; and Mr. Eliot was a near kinsman of the Curtis family. Similar ties by blood and marriage united the Sears, Mason, Warren, Parker, and Amory families, and also the Shaw, Sturgis, Parkman, and Perkins families. Another group was the Sturgis, Perkins, Cabot, Forbes, Cary, Gardiner, and Cushing families. The different groups were often connected by kin or close friendship.

Felton, however, with all his liking for Sumner's personal qualities, had no natural affinity for his philanthropic aspirations. This second marriage To a daughter of Thomas G. Cary, of Boston. Ante, p. 106. brought him into close relations with the conservative and compromising Whigs; and in march, 1850, he went heartily into the Webster movement. He signed the letter approving the speech of March 7, and undertook the defence of Webster's Latin quotations in articles which were understood to contain thrusts at Sumner. He visited Webster at Marshfield in September, 1852. Curtis's Life of Webster, vol. II. p. 667. There was a painful correspondence between the
