Whipple described the social leaders of Boston at this time, in a conversation with the Author, as fixed and limited in their ideas.—in politics, Whig; in faith, Unitarian and Episcopalian. Its members were closely connected by intermarriage; and a personal difficulty with one was quickly taken 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

Dr. Palfrey wrote July 1, 1849:— I have read your address on Peachad done, and of what others had said of them, had this extent, no more. E. P.

Dr. Francis Wayland thanked him for the speech, expt between Beacon and other streets on the route, making allowance for the habits, tastes, and social reserve of people living in that part of the town; and he is sure that as they drove, and during the evening at Sumner's house, where friends—E. P. Whipple and others—were present, and in Sumner's call on the professor at Cambridge, at all of which times the scenes of the day were talked over, no such difference between one part of the city and another was referred to or apparently observed by S
