A tablet in St. Andrew's Cathedral was unveiled yesterday by Bishop Kirkby in memory of Blshop-Coadjutor Gerard Addington D'Arcy Irvine. Bishop Kirkby said that time had endeared Bishop D'Arcy Irvine to their memories as a man who was "a dear fellow-servant and a faithful minister of Christ. " They remembered not only the man whom they all loved dearly and respected, but also the great beauty of his character and the tenderness and charitableness of his disposition. He had left behind blessed memories and high examples and ideals for his brother ministers. There was a representative attendance, including many ministers and members of the parishes in which Bishop D'Arcy Irvine had served as rector.
