Transcript THE BERLIN IRON BRIDGE COMPANY, The Berlin Iron Bridge Co.: North Haven, Conn. Gentlemen—We are well pleased with the iron bridge you erected for us the past season, and would recommend it to any who need structures of a similar kind. R. T. Linsley, \ W. B. Hemmingway, l Selectmen. F. E. Jacobs, J Office of Amoskeag Mfg. Co., Manchester, N. H. Berlin Iron Bridge Co. : • Gentlemen—Your favor of the 8th inst. is at hand. I am glad to say that our experience with the two iron bridges and the iron roof of our boiler-house, which your Company erected for us last summer, has been satisfactory so far. Yours truly, J. S. Livermore, Agent. The Berlin Iron Bridge Co. : Keene Valley, N. Y. Gentlemen—I think that the Parabolic bridge that you furnished for the town is superior to any other that I have seen. It gives perfect satisfaction. Yours truly, Monroe Holt, Supervisor. The Berlin Iron Bridge Co. : Amherst, Mass. Gentlemen—The iron bridge built by your Company for this town four years ago has given entire satisfaction. It appears to be as firm, strong, and unyielding now as the day it was finished, and all the indications are that is to be its permanent" condition. Respectfully yours, Levi Stockbridge, 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. : GLENDALE, Mass. Gentlemen—Referring to your favor of the 2ist inst., would say, the iron bridge erected by you four years since for the town of Stockbridge, has, from its peculiar location, been subjected to a very severe trial. It has given perfect satisfaction, and is, so far as I can see, in perfect order. I would cheerfully recommend your bridge to any in need, and would be pleased at any time to meet persons who might wish to examine it. Truly yours, F. M. Adams, Selectman. Office of Chaffee & Callender, Glendale, Mass. Berlin Iron Bridge Co. : Gentlemen—The iron bridge that you put up for us in June, 1882, has been in constant use ever since, and gives perfect satisfaction. Though light in appearance, it has been loaded heavier than any common road bridge; often is without any perceptible springing; and we cheerfully recommend it to any one who wants a good bridge. Yours truly, CHAFFEE & CALLENDER. The Berlin Iron Bridge Co.: Londonderry, Vt. Gentlemen—The iron bridge you built for us some two years ago has given entire satisfaction. Those who were opposed to putting in an iron bridge now consider it a good investment. I can conscientiously recommend your work to any one in want of iron bridges. Yours very truly, W. L. Gibson, Chairman Selectmen. Berlin Iron Bridge Co. : Gentlemen—Your bridge here you claimed. Goshen, Ind. > entirely satisfactory, and we find it to be all A. Myers, Sup't of Bridges. The Berlin Iron Bridge Co. : Stillwater, R. I. Gentlemen—Your request is at hand. In reply will say, so far as the bridge you constructed in our town meets with an approbation perfectly in every particular, though we have made no severe test as to its strength. Four heavy horses with a wagon loaded with five-ton weight driven over it makes scarcely a perceptible vibration or jar on the iron rods. I think it far superior to one of wood. I don't think a wooden bridge of that length could have been built as firm as this appears to be. I would recommend iron every time in case of a new bridge. Yours truly, J. S. Appleby, Pres. Town Council. The Berlin Bridge Co.: Lee, Mass. Gentlemen—The bridges you built for us are perfectly satisfactory in every way. We do not know of anything about them but what is perfect. If we were in want of any more should not look for anything better than these have proved so far. Yours respectfully, F. C. Phelps, Chairman Selectmen. The Berlin Iron Bridge Co.: Harwinton, Conn. Gentlemen—Yours of the 22nd inst. is received. In reply would say, the bridge you built between the towns of Harwinton and Litchfield has been satisfactory to the traveling public in every way, and I most earnestly endorse the Berlin Iron Bridge Company as the builders of good, strong, and reliable bridges. Very truly yours, Henry E. Hinman, Chairman Selectmen. Berlin Iron Bridge Co.: DANFORTH, Me. Gentlemen—The iron bridge built for our town by your Company last year, and placed in position by Mr. John Towne, your Company's special agent, gives entire satisfaction. It is the universal opinion that it is the cheapest and best bridge ever built in this section of the country. Very truly yours, Goodwin Brothers, Danforth, Me. EAST BERLIN, CONNECTICUT, U. S. A.
