both persons of vigorous intellect and high-toned mo
rality. On account of the delicacy of his constitution,
he was permitted to pass a large part of his childhood
in play, which he dearly loved. He also loved books,
among which Addison's " Spectator" was an especial
favourite with him. Having learned the rudiments of
education at home, and in the common schools of the
vicinity, he was sent, in May, 1796,10 Phillips Exeter
Academy, of which Benjamin Abbot was the principal.
Young Webster was at that time so diffident, as he him-
self tells us, that he could not be induced to declaim
before the school. "The kind and excellent Buck-
minster," says he, in his autobiography, "sought to
persuade me to perform the exercise of declamation like
other boys, but I could not do it." In February, 1797,
he quitted the academy of Exeter, and pursued his
studies under the tuition of the Rev. Samuel Wood,
of Boscawen. His father, although burdened with a
large family and hardly able to defray the expense, had
resolved to send Daniel to college. Having read six
books of Virgil's "yEneid" and some of Cicero's ora-
tions, and obtained a little knowledge of Greek grammar,
he entered Dartmouth College as a freshman in August,
1797. According to his own statement, he was "misera-
bly prepared both in Latin and Greek," and he had little
taste or genius for mathematics. His habits at college
were studious and regular. " By the close of his first
year," says Edward Everett, " young Webster had shown
himself decidedly the foremost man of his class ; and that
position he held through his whole college course." He
was also the best writer and public speaker in the college.
By teaching school during vacations he earned money,
which he gave to aid his elder brother Ezekiel, whom
the family sent to college, not without great sacrifices
and privations. This brother, who was called by some
the handsomest man in the United States, became a
prominent lawyer, and died in 1829. Daniel graduated
in August, 1801, and began to study law in the office of
Thomas W. Thompson, of Salisbury, who was elected to
the Senate of the United States in 1814 In order to
earn a supply of money for his brother who was at
college, he took charge of an academy at Fryeburg, in
Maine, with a salary of three hundred and fifty dollars
per annum. Here he remained about eight months, and
returned to Mr. Thompson's ofEce in the autumn of
1802. Upon coming of age he joined the Congrega-
tional (Orthodox) Church. In politics he was a zealous
Federalist. He was passionately fond of hunting and
fishing, both in his youth and his mature life.

To perfect his legal education, he went to Boston in
July, 1804, and had the good fortune to be received as a
'clerk in the office of Christopher Gore, an eminent law-
yer and statesman. Here he read Vattel and Puffendorf,
but devoted himself chiefly to the study of the common
law, and was admitted to the bar in March, 1805. He
practised nearly two years at Boscawen, and in 1807
removed to Portsmouth, New Hampshire. Before this
date he had delivered several Fourth-of-July orations.
In June, 1808, he married Grace Fletcher, of Hopkinton,
New Hampshire. He rose rapidly in his profession,
and was soon regarded as a fit antagonist for Jeremiah
Mason, who was the greatest lawyer in the State, and
was many years older than Webster. In November,
1812, he was elected as a Federalist to the National
House of Representatives, in which he took his seat in
May, 1813. He opposed the war against Great Britain,
took an active part in the debates which that war oc-
casioned, and advocated an increase of the navy. His
speeches on these subjects placed him in the first rank
as a debater. He was re-elected to the fourteenth Con-
gress, which met in December, 1815, when the violence
of party spirit had greatly abated, and the return of
peace had directed the attention of the national legis-
lature to new and important questions. Among these
was a charter of the Bank of the United States, to which
he moved an amendment requiring the bank to pay de-
posits in specie. He also rendered an important service
by a resolution presented April 26, 1816, requiring that
all payments to the public treasury must be made in
specie or its equivalents, which resolution was adopted,
and greatly improved the currency of the country.



Having resolved to retire from public life and devote
himself to his profession, he removed, in 1816, from
Portsmouth to Boston. On this wider arena his profes-
sional reputation was greatly increased, and he became
