To the Public: We. the elders of
ihe Presbyterian church, do hereby
say to the public that it Is a well
known fart that ever since that we
came from the A. M. K. church Rev.
D. D. Colo and his followers have been
criticised and yet through the help of
God. we have come thus far. We
have learned again that every knock
is a boost We as members of the
People's Presbyterian church, have
learned to quit knocking and gone to
boosting, and therefore we stand
ready to vindicate D. D. Cole as our
pastor and boost him to the top.
