"Winthrop served only a decade in Congress, winning recognition for his oratory. He was also an able parliamentarian and served as Speaker of the House during the Thirtieth Congress. However, his consistent efforts to maintain the Whig party as an effective national organization left him isolated from many of his former friends and brought him increasing criticism as the party fractured first in Massachusetts and then nationally. Ill at ease in the new politics of the 1850s, the genteel Winthrop sought haven in philanthropy and in historical pursuits, where his achievements earned him much respect. " - ANB . Very Good. 1897.
