there has sprung up ln many quarters
a bollef that Dr. Kerr will probably ao
cept the call. In a former Instance. when
a promlnent church of the North desired

sion he has let lt come. and this Is
taken by many to lndlcate that he wlll

wlll be accepted seems to be widely cur

Dr.' Kerr. when seen. yesterday, had

And'this Richmond congregatlon will

Kerr makes It emlnently likely that the
peoplo of the First Church wlll rl:-e up
