PREFACE 



We take pleasure in submitting Vol. VI of the Gastonia, N. C, 
Directoi-y. While no directory is free from errors, we feel sure 
the Gastonia Directory will rank above the average city directory 
and will give general satisfaction. Experienced help only has been 
used in collecting the data for this directory, and if there are any 
omissions of names it is not due to the fact that the ground was 
not fully covered by our canvassers, for a house-to-house canvass 
was made. It often occurs that a person, in giving the information 
for the directory, overlooks or forgets to give names of persons 
that should be listed, and m such cases it is not the fault of the 
publisher that seme names are left out. The Gastonia Directory 
can be relied upon, and will be found by all who use it to be a very 
valuable book of information, and one which no up-to-date business 
man can afford to be without. 



We desire to thank our patrons for their liberal support, by which 
this publication was made possible. We also desire to extend our 
thanks to our many friends and the public in general for the cour- 
teous way in which they supplied us with the proper data. It is 
a pleasure for us to publish a directory in a city where the people 
are interested and where they are willing to co-operate with us and 
lend their aid in the making up of a work of this character as was 
the case in Gastonia. This of itself is good evidence that Gastonia 
is a good, live, up-to-date city, and a good place in which to live. 

We shall continue this publication and promise you efficient 
service.
