Transcript THE BERLIN IRON BRIDGE COMPANY, The Berlin Iron Bridge Co.: BUCKFIELD, Me. Gentlemen—The two iron bridges, which you built for us some four years ago, are giving entire satisfaction, and I have no hesitation in recommending them to others in want of first-class structures. Yours truly, A. P. Bonney, Chairman Selectmen. The Berlin Iron Bridge Co. : Lower Bartlett, N. H. Gentlemen—Some four years ago, your company built a bridge for the town of Bartlett. The bridge spans the east branch of the Saco River. Not a nut has been turned on the bridge since built, and the only expense incurred since is painting it over. It stands to-day the same as when built, and, for aught I know, as good. The bridge we had across the stream before this bridge was built was a wooden one, somewhat of the model of yours, but of single action, yours being double makes it much stronger, and of iron, as much better and durable, as iron is over wood. We have three covered bridges in town, and for wear this is worth the whole of them. I can cheerfully recommend your bridge to any town that wants a good, durable, and cheap bridge. Yours truly, G. W. M. Pitman, Chairman Selectmen. The Berlin Iron Bridge Co. : Biddeford, Me. Gentlemen—I desire to acknowledge a full approval of the splendid Parabolic Truss Bridge lately furnished this city by your company. It is substantially without deflection, notwithstanding the numerous weights it is required to sustain, and its contour is faultless. Respectfully, etc., Samuel F. Parcher, Mayor. e have built another bridge in this city for a new board The Berlin Iron Bridge Co. : UXBRIDGE, MASS. Gentlemen—The Parabolic Truss Bridge we bought of your company last summer, gives general satisfaction. It is strong and stiff, no shake or tremble when teams pass over it, even if it be faster than a walk. It is also ornamental as well as strong, which together, makes it a very desirable bridge to erect. After a trial of six or eight months as compared with the many other iron bridges in the market, all doubts are removed, and I call your Parabolic Truss Bridge superior to all of them. Yours respectfully, Zadok A. Taft, Chairman Selectmen. The Berlin Iron Bridge Co.: South Canterbury, Conn. Gentlemen—A letter written by your treasurer has just come to hand. The Parabolic Truss Bridge, you built for us last summer, gives complete satisfaction to us all. A few of my townsmen were bitter against it at first, but after observing it properly tested are now loud in its praise, and consider it more economical than a wooden bridge. There will hereafter be no more large wooden bridges built in this part of the country. They will be of iron. Respectfully, George F. Tillinghast, Selectman. Berlin Iron Bridge Co. ; NASHUA, N. H. Dear Sirs—Yours received. The bridge you built for the city speaks for itself far better than I can. It is as solid as our granite hills. Truly yours, A. M. Norton, Mayor. The Berlin Iron Bridge Co. : LUDLOW, Vt. Gentlemen—The two iron bridges erected in the fall of 1883, also the one in 1885, have proven satisfactory. They have now been up long enough for us to be able to say they are first-class work, and we can recommend your company and your bridges to all parties. We would cheerfully give our time in recommending and showing our bridges to all who wish to see them. Respectfully yours, D. R. Sargent, Chairman Selectmen. The Berlin Iron Bridge Co.: North Sheldon, Vt. Gentlemen—Yours received. Would say that I can heartily recommend your bridge as first-class work, and gives entire satisfaction. In the last thaw the ice jammed at the ends of the bridge so that it rose up from its abutments, but it came back all right. It must be strong and well made to stand such a pressure. Yours truly, J. A. Potter, Chairman Selectmen. The Berlin Iron Bridge Co.: South Oxford, N. Y. Gentlemen—Yours of January 27th was duly received, and in reply would say that the tax-payers of Oxford are much pleased with our bridge and think it is a first-class one. I do not think that there are more than ten tax-payers in town but what are pleased. Respectfully yours, J. B. Willoughby, Com. Highways. The Berlin Iron Bridge Co.: Mayors' Office, City of Taunton, Mass. Gentlemen—I desire to express to you my entire satisfaction with the two concrete iron bridges which you have erected for this city during the present season. For substantiality and convenience they are unsurpassed. Respectfully yours, R. H. Hall, Mayor. The Berlin Iron Bridge Co. : Torrington, Conn. Gentlemen—We are glad to recommend your iron bridges. We have nine of them in our town, some of them being subjected to heavy traffic, and we have no hesitation in recommending them as being first-class in every respect. Some of these bridges have been in use about five years, so that we have a good opportunity to judge of their merits, and we have no hesitation in recommending them to other towns. Yours respectfully, George A. Allen, E. C Hotchkiss, T. M. Sullivan, Selectmen. EAST BERLIN, CONNECTICUT, U. S. A.
