What was it that made any slave state more of a sister state to S.C. than any Free State?

I would have preferred to have made some sort of insightful contribution, but in the absence of anyone else stepping up with the painfully obvious answer to the OP (Slavery) I sacrificed to do it; and you're welcome.

If I had only waited ...Hartwell soon stepped up to it as well.
Thanks for your contribution.

It's easy to see that Massachusetts was more of an antebellum sister state to South Carolina than say, Virginia was. This, of course, is because of the close economic inter-dependency between Massachusetts and South Carolina.
