FROM MISSION TRIP
HE VISITED THE MEXICAN MIS
SIONS OF NORTHERN NEW MEX
ICO, AND ACCOMPLISHED MUCH
Rev. Thomas Harwood returned
from the north last night on delayed
train No. 1. He has visited quite a
number of places' In northwestern
New Mexico In the Interest of his
work, among them being Wagon
Mound, Clayton, Tucumcari, Roy,
Dawson and Springer. He had the
honor Inst Sunday of preaching the
first Protestant sermon ever preached
In Roy. The services were bold in the
large stone public school building
twice in English and once In Spanish.
At these services he met many of his
old friends of years ago Jews, Gen
tilts, Protestants and Catholics. .
At Clayton his congregations were
unusually large. At that place he was
nicely entertained at the home of the
pastor. Rev. Ainbrosio Gonzales. Mr.
Gonzales ad wife were students at
the Harwood school in Albuquerque,
he at the boy's school and she at the
gin's school. They are great favor
ites at Clayton, both among Amerl
cans and Mexicans.
On invitation of the Methodist
Episcopal pastor at Trinidad, Mr. Har
wood stepped off to helo prepare
some items of the early history of
Methodism at that place. The peo
ple were preparing to celebrate the
thirty-sixth anniversary of their
church organization at that place. Dr,
Harwood straightened Chem out on
the time and place of their first serv
ice. He, himself, on his way to New
Mexico, preached for the Methodist
pastor, Rev. E. J. Rice, on October 23,
18i!, in a small adobe house on the
main street. There were thirteen peo
ple present and it was considered a
fine congregation for the time and
place. Rev. Rice had preceded Rev.
Harwood two weeks and had preached
once at the same place, which was
the Sabbath of October lfi. 1809.
