Arkansas City Traveler, June 19, 1878.
I think the moral vein of the matter may be safely left in the hands of the clergy of your city, Messrs. Fleming and Hunt, as I believe them to be sound both in doctrine and practice, and will deliver to saint and sinner his portion in due season.
Arkansas City Traveler, December 4, 1878.
There will be a church meeting held at the M. E. Church, Arkansas City, Saturday, Dec. 7, at 7 p.m., for the purpose of making arrangements about plastering the church. We desire to have all the members present, also all who will give us a helping hand.
T. S. HUNT, Pastor.

Services at the M. E. Church on next Sabbath at 10:30 a.m. Conducted by B. C. Swarts. In the evening by the Pastor, Rev. T. S. Hunt.
Winfield Courier, February 27, 1879.

ARKANSAS CITY ITEMS. The Methodist protracted meeting is still going on. Brother Hunt catches a few in his “net” occasionally, although some of them may not be “choice fish.” The meetings are generally well attended. I notice ministers of the Presbyterian Church are present occasionally and take part in the service. This is both right and proper and shows a Christian spirit and a desire to do good.
Arkansas City Traveler, March 5, 1879.
Brothers Swarts and Hunt started for Conference last week, where they expect to be transplanted into another vineyard.
