The subject of this portrait is identified in an inscription only as "Bishop White." He is probably William White (1748-1836) of Philadelphia, an Episcopal clergyman who was consecrated bishop of Pennsylvania in 1787. With William Smith, White was chiefly responsible for the American revision of the Book of Common Prayer. This sketch came to the society mounted in an album of sketches and engravings by Thomas S. Cummings and various other nineteenth-century American artists.
