Description

Excerpt from The Latter-Day Saints' Millennial Star, Vol. 67: February 23, 1905 It was late in April when I set out for Kirtland. I went by way of Cleve land, where I remained over night to hear Henry Ward Beecher in his lecture on The Ministry of Wealth. Continuing my journey, and leaving the train at Willoughby, I walked two or three miles through a beautiful rolling country, and about dusk presenting myself at my great-uncle's door. Upon telling him who I was, be welcomed me cordially, and We passed the evening in pleasant conversation, mostly on family matters. My attempts to draw him out upon the subject of religion, especially Mormonism, were futile. He said he knew all about it, long before I was born, having come to Kirtland soon after his brother, Newel K. Whitney, my grandfather, became the bishop of that place, and while Joseph Smith, the founder of the Church, still resided there. But while incorrigible upon the subject of the Gospel, he was a very pleasant and entertaining old gentleman, shrewd, intelligent, and possessing a keen sense of humor. He was fondly attached to the memory of his brother N. And I saw that he was not only willing but anxious to treat with kindness anyone related to the Bishop. Next morning after my arrival at his home, he hitched up a fine team and took me in his buggy to see the Kirtland Temple, and to call upon various members of his family. We went through the Temple, visited Gilbert and Whitney's old store and other historic places, and then drove down to the plains, close upon the lake shore, where some of our kindred dwelt.
