From: Webster's Revised Unabridged Dictionary (1913)

 Thith·er adv.
 1. To that place; -- opposed to hither.
    This city is near; . . . O, let me escape thither.   --Gen. xix. 20.
    Where I am, thither ye can not come.   --John vii. 34.
 2. To that point, end, or result; as, the argument tended thither.
 Hither and thither, to this place and to that; one way and another.
 Syn: -- There.
 Usage: Thither, There. Thither properly denotes motion toward a place; there denotes rest in a place; as, I am going thither, and shall meet you there. But thither has now become obsolete, except in poetry, or a style purposely conformed to the past, and there is now used in both senses; as, I shall go there to-morrow; we shall go there together.
