Abbott Gin Company
Roy Riddels and Hedley Abbott have bought the old Wilson Cotton Gin in Caddo and will operate under the name of Abbott Gin Co.
Workmen are now busy tearing down, rebuilding and renewing all the old gin so that within two weeks this gin will be ready to run; ready to give the farmers the kind of service they like.
This gin is in a handy location from every direction.
The people are familiar with Roy Riddels and Hedley Abbott, and know that they will give them every service.
When renewed the gin will be as good as new. All old and worn parts will be replaced.
Mr. Abbott was previously mentioned in March of 1922:
In severing my connection with the Caddo Motor Co. I would not be just to the good people of Caddo and vicinity if I did not voice my appreciation of their generous treatment of me during my stay here. I shall always remember Caddo with pleasure. Mr. Hedley Abbot takes my place as manager of the Caddo Motor Co. He will be glad to furnish you with anything needful for the Ford and Fordson Tractor. S. H. Sullivan
