B Bishop Whitney
From the life of Orson Ferguson Whitney: At the farewell testimonial where he and his counselors (Elders Patrick and Barton) laid down their Ward officers he entreated his old-time friends and associates to continue greeting him as “Bishop.” He afterwards said in the hearing of this writer: “I have never wanted to be called ‘Apostle’ Whitney; it is exceedingly distasteful to me; that sacred title should not be used thus commonly. I have never desired it; but I have expressed, on more than one occasion, a preference for my old title of ‘Bishop,’ which I wore so long, and around which so many happy memories cluster. I recognize, of course that ‘Elder’ is now my proper designation, on all official occasions; but when meeting socially with old-time friends, or when referred to in a literary connection, I prefer to be called ‘Bishop’—for purposes of identification if nothing more. There are many Elder Whitney’s in the Church, and I produced most of my literary works as Bishop Whitney.”
