Transcript THE BERLIN IRON BRIDGE COMPANY, Gentlemen of the Iron Bridge Co. : SHARON, CONN. The bridge you erected across the stream at Sharon Valley in 1S84 gives entire satisfaction. The public commend it for its sjmmetrical proportions, as well as for its strength and durability. The bridge is situated near a blast furnace, and is crossed daily, except Sundays, with teams heavily loaded with iron and coal. I consider the wear and tear on this bridge greater than on any other of its size in town, and it stands its test well. To towns desirous of erecting iron bridges I can cheerfully recommend your Bridge Company for good work and fair dealing. Yours respectfully, Baldwin Reed, First Selectman. The Berlin Iron Bridge Co. : Dover, Me. Dear Sirs—In answer to your letter of inquiry of Jan. 21st., would say that the iron bridge built by your Company for our town in the tall of 1884 has given entire satisfaction. The citizens are well pleased with it, and should we want another bridge, we would, in my opinion, vote unanimously for another iron one, in preference to the old wooden ones, and would advise all parties in want of a good substantial bridge to buy your iron bridge every time. Yours truly, I. O. Burgess, Ch. Selectmen. The Iron Bridge Co.: Derby, Conn. Gentlemen—The iron bridges built for the town of Derby, as we have stated before, give the best of satisfaction; they are strong, durable, and built to stay. You may refer to our board at any time. Yours truly, Robert O. Gates, Chairman Selectmen. Since above was written we have built another bridge in this town for a new board of town officers. The Berlin Iron Bridge Co.: Washington Mills Co., Lawrence, Mass. Gentlemen—The bridge you built for us last summer is entirely satisfactory in every way. Yours respectfully, Washington Mills Co. The Berlin Iron Bridge Co. Thomaston, Me. Gentlemen—The iron bridge 60 ft. span and 18 ft. roadway which your company built between this town and the city of Rockland in 1885 gives entire satisfaction. The bridge has been in use two years and subject to heavy loads and continuous traffic which has fully tested it, and now we have no hesitation in saying the bridge is entirely satisfactory in every way, shape, and manner, and we cheerfully recommend your company to all in want of first-class iron bridges. The Parabolic Bridge built by your company has great stiffness as well as beauty of outline. We are thoroughly satisfied with the bridge and your manner of dealing. Yours very truly, Wm. A. Hatch, Chairman Selectmen. Since above was written we have built another bridge in this town for a new board of town officers. The Berlin Iron Bridge Co. : Hollis Center, Me. Gentlemen—The iron bridge built by your company between this town and Buxton has given entire satisfaction. I consider it first-class in every particular, and I can cheerfully recommend your company to any town in want of first-class iron bridges. W. S. Moulton, Chairman Selectmen. The Berlin Iron Bridge Co. : Corinth, Vt. Gentlemen—I can with pleasure say that the bridge that you built for us last summer gives perfect satisfaction, and we can cheerfully recommend your work to those in need of first-class bridges. Yours truly, G. M. Winchester, Chairman Selectmen. The Berlin Iron Bridge Co. : Hofkinton, N. Y. Gentlemen—The Parabolic Low Truss Bridge built at Ft. Jackson in the town of Hopkinton in 1885 \>y your company gives entire satisfaction to the tax-payers and the traveling public. We have no hesitation in recommending your company to any town or committee wishing to purchase bridges. Respectfully yours, J. A. Harron, Commissioner of Highways. The Berlin Iron Bridge Co. : Westi-ort, Mass. Gentlemen—Your favor of the 8th received. In regard to the iron bridge constructed by you for the town of Westport last summer we have to say that the bridge as erected is very satisfactory to the great majority of our town people, and we believe so far as can be seen the bridge is all that you claimed for it, viz.: a bridge of great strength and utility. We have no doubt that that class of bridge will become general as old bridges become dilapidated and untrustworthy and need replacing. Yours truly, A. D. Manchester, 1 c , , H.W.Kirby, 'j Selectmen. Berlin Iron Bridge Co.: Office of Merrick Thread Co., Holyoke, Mass. Gentlemen—The iron elevated bridge, 81 feet span, you erected for us across Main street in this city, gives us thus far entire satisfaction. We consider it strong against any lateral pressure less than a tornado. Yours truly, Timothy Merrick, Treas. The Berlin Iron Bridge Co., Burnham, Me. Gentlemen—Yours of the 21st came duly to hand, inquiring about the bridge you built for us three years ago. In reply would say that the bridge has given entire satisfaction, and if we had another one to build we should let the job to your company. Yours truly, G. E. Berry, Chairman Selectmen. EAST BERLIN, CONNECTICUT, U. S. A.
