etcher and painter, born at Lowell, Massachusetts, in
1834. He was a son of George Washington Whistler,
and was educated at West Point. He studied art in
Paris, and in 1855 went to England and settled there
permanently. His paintings attracted great attention
and found eager admirers and severe critics, but his
etchings are universally praised. He is specially noted
as a colourist. He was made an officer of the Legion
of Honour in 1891. He is the author of "Ten
O'Clock" and " The Gentle Art of Making Enemies,"
(1890.)

to mathematics and the Cartesian philosophy, and took
his degree in 1690. He was elected a Fellow of his
college in the same year, and was ordained a priest in
1693. About this time he became acquainted with Sir
Isaac Newton. In 1696 he published a "New Theory
of the Earth, from its Original to the Consummation of
all Things," in which he attributed the great Deluge to
the collision of a comet with the earth. This work ran
through six editions. He obtained the living of Lowes-
toft, in Suffolk, in 1698, soon after which he married a
Miss Antrobus. In 1701 Newton nominated him as
his deputy in the Lucasian professorship at Cambridge.

the chair of mathematics, which the former resigned in
1703. He then gave up his living at Lowestoft, and
removed to Cambridge, where he also officiated as z
clergyman, having been appointed lecturer of Saint Clem-
ent's. In 1707 he was appointed preacher of the Boyle
lecture, and published " Prxlectiones Astronomies."

he advocated in a volume of sermons and essays pub-
lished in 1709, and in other writings. In 1710 he was
deprived of his professorship and expelled from the
university. He then settled in London, and published
a " Historical Preface to Primitive Christianity," (1710,)
which was followed by" Primitive Christianity Revived,"
(4 vols., 1711.) The clergy prosecuted him for heresy in
the spiritual courts; but, after many evasive delays, the
prosecution was ended in 1715, by an act of grace by
which all heretics were pardoned. Whiston was an
unflinching and courageous asserter of religious liberty,
and was distinguished for his shrewd and pithy retorts
in conversation. He was once in company with Addison,
Pope, Walpole, and Secretary Craggs, who raised the
question whether a secretary of state could be an honest
man. Whiston having expressed his opinion in the af-
firmative, Craggs said, "It might answer for a fortnight,
but no longer." Whiston then asked, "Mr. Secretary,
did you ever try it for a fortnight?" to which Craggs
made no answer. He published in 1737 a translation
of Josephus, often reprinted, and in 1749-50 his enter-
taining "Memoirs of his own Life," (3 vols.) Died in

"The Protestant Reconciler," etc., which encountered
violent opposition and was condemned to be burned. His
" Paraphrase and Commentary on the New Testament,"
(1703,) a defence of Arminianism, is regarded as his
best production, and was followed by several other
works of a similar nature. Dr. Whitby subsequently
professed Arianism, in defence of which he wrote a
number of tracts, and also defended Bishop Hoadly in

Having previously ma.de several contributions to the
"Monthly Mirror" and other literary journals, he pub-
lished about 1803 a collection of poems, which were
severely criticised by the reviewers. The volume, how-
ever, attracted the notice of Southey, who subsequently
became his warm friend and generous patron. Having

it became his earnest desire to educate himself for the
ministry. Through the assistance of several friends, he
was enabled to enter Saint John's College, Cambridge,
in 1804. His severe application to study and the excite-
ment of preparing for examination were too much for
his originally frail constitution, and he fell into a rapid
decline, dying in October, 1806. His works, in prose
and verse, were published in 1807 by Southey, with a
very interesting biography.
