The Caddo Herald
December 31, 1920
New Year Greeting
The Herald extends to its readers and friends heartiest wishes for their success and happiness during 1921.
We thank you for your business and consideration in the past, and while making mistakes in the past, hope to make less in the future. The uniform kindness of our patrons, coupled with their public spirit and generous impulses has made possible whatever success The Herald has achieved during the twenty-seven years of its existence.
The Herald is by far the oldest institution in Caddo, except the post office. This issue completes its 27th year and under its present management it has been run 20 years, so we are by no means a newcomer to Caddo. In that time we have seen Caddo grow from a small village to a sizable town. Then we had only four small brick buildings, compared with the forty now. We had one bank, a few mercantile stores, etc., narrow, unworked streets, only wells for water, no sewers, no school buildings, and small churches.
When one contemplates the differences in the town that twenty-two years make we can but feel that Caddo has grown considerably. With this growth and prosperity The Herald has kept pace, and will continue to keep pace with the town. As conditions warrant it new improvements will be made, due regard having to be had however for income meeting expenses.
The growth and benefits of the town, however, are not the results of any one man’s work nor of a group of men. It is the result of determined pioneers, who overcame obstacles that Caddo might become a city worth living in.
