For many years Mr. WHITNEY, was a merchant in the Central village, but later in life he purchased the bakery and carried on a while the manufacture of the celebrated "Westminster Bread." Was also engaged some- what at last in probate and insurance business. Possessing many of the qualities which distinguished his father, he also shared to a large degree the regard and con- fidence of the public. He held all the important offices in the gift of his fellow- citizens, including that of representative to the general court for two successive terms. He was a public-spirited citizen, lending his sympathy and co-operation to whatever was deemed by him conducive to the general welfare. A thorough-going temperance man, his influence was on the right side of that beneficent reform. Hostile to the system of American slavery, he joined the so-called Free Soil party of 1848, and its lineal successor, the Republican party of 1850, remaining its devoted adherent to the last. Having considerable natural musical ability, improved by training and practice, he was for many years the efficient leader of the Congrega- tional church choir. His useful and honorable life came to its close at the ripe age of 78. His second wife, an estimable woman, passed away a few months before. He d. Jan. 17, 1890; res. Westminster, Mass. 4370. i.
