 whith·er /ˈhwɪðɚ/

From: Webster's Revised Unabridged Dictionary (1913)

 Whith·er adv.

    Sir Valentine, whither away so fast?   --Shak.
 2. To what or which place; -- used relatively.
    That no man should know . . . whither that he went.   --Chaucer.
    We came unto the land whither thou sentest us.   --Num. xiii. 27.
 3. To what point, degree, end, conclusion, or design; whereunto; whereto; -- used in a sense not physical.
    Nor have I . . . whither to appeal.   --Milton.
 Any whither, to any place; anywhere. [Obs.] Any whither, in hope of life eternal.” --Jer. Taylor.
 No whither, to no place; nowhere. [Obs.]
 Syn: -- Where.
 Usage: -- Whither, Where. Whither properly implies motion to place, and where rest in a place. Whither is now, however, to a great extent, obsolete, except in poetry, or in compositions of a grave and serious character and in language where precision is required. Where has taken its place, as in the question, Where are you going?”
