THE BERLIN IRON BRIDGE COMPANY,
The Berlin Iron Bridge Co.: GUILFORD, N. Y.
Gentlemen—The bridge you built across the Unadilla River for our town and the
town of Unadilla, in the year 1884, has been thoroughly tested, and I take pleasure in
saying it is in every way as represented and gives entire satisfaction.
Truly yours, J. J. Godfrey, Commissioner of Highways.
The Berlin Iron Bridge Co.: Monroe, Me.
Gentlemen—The iron bridge you put in for us last year, has given entire satisfaction. Even those opposed to iron bridges are satisfied that it is the best and cheapest that could be erected. I have not heard a man find fault with the bridge in any
particular. It is all we could have hoped for. Yours truly,
W. B. F. Twombly, Chairman Selectmen.
The Berlin Iron Bridge Co.: Oakland, Me.
Gentlemen—Four years ago last summer you erected for our town an iron bridge
of two spans 61 ft. each, 20 ft. roadway, 5 ft. walk. We consider the bridge fully up
to your representation; in every respect a first-class structure. The only outlay upon
the bridge since its erection has been for one coat of paint, and of course for the necessary plank. Yours respectfully, J. Wesley Gilman, Chairman Selectmen.
The Berlin Iron Bridge Co. : North-' Conway, N. H.
Gentlemen—The bridge built for the town of Conway, by your Company three
years ago, has given entire satisfaction to the town and traveling public, and it gives me
great pleasure to recommend your work to other towns that contemplate building
bridges. Yours truly, HlRAM Dow, Chairman Selectmen.
The Berlin Iron Bridge Co. : Meriden, Conn.
Gentlemen—Yours of the 6th inst received. We consider the bridges erected by
you for our factories last summer as first-class. They are perfectly solid, do not spring
or shake, and on this account think them superior to anything of the kind which we
have ever tried before. Yours truly,
Meriden Britania Co., H. C. Wilcox, President.
Mr. 'Wilcox is also President of the Meriden Waterbury and Connecticut River Railroad.
We built 34 spans of Iron Bridge for this company in the last two years ; in fact, we furnished
every Iron Railroad or Highway Bridge over the entire line of the road.
The Berlin Iron Bridge Co.: Black Brook, N. Y.
Gentlemen—The iron bridge erected by you for the town of Black Brook last
spring at Union Falls has given entire satisfaction thus far to the users of it. It is
regarded by the tax-payers who have seen it as a satisfactory investment of their money.
Yours truly, H. W. Stetson, Commissioner of Highways.
The Berlin Iron Bridge Co. : Lyndon, Vt.
Gentlemen—We have yours asking how we like the two iron bridges which you
built for us two years ago. In answer, I would say with pleasure, that they have
given entire satisfaction. Our largest iron bridge stands between the railroad and
four big saw-mills, where loads of lumber all pass over this bridge with big six-horse
teams daily, and it stands firm. Our town has sixteen covered bridges, which costs
$64.00 a year to keep them snowed. I will vote iron every day.
Yours truly, W. W. Heath, First Selectman.
The Berlin Iron Bridge Co. : Conklin N. Y.
Gentlemen—The bridge which your Company built for us some three years ago
has given entire satisfaction, and we have no hesitancy in recommending the bridge to
other towns in want of the best. We have another iron bridge- -a Pratt Truss—
which was built for our town this year, but we consider your bridge the best kind of a
bridge. Yours truly, Levi L. Rowe, Com. Highways.
Since above was written we have built another bridge in this town for a new board of
The Berlin Iron Bridge Co. : Plainville, Conn.
Gentlemen—The bridge built for our town three years ago has been thoroughly
tested, and is satisfactory in every particular. The destruction of the old bridge
by fire and the replacing it by this one has been a profitable investment for us. No
more wooden bridges here. Respectfully, R. A. Potter, Selectman.
The Berlin Iron Bridge Co. : FranconiA, N. H.
Gentlemen—In reply to yours, permit me to say that, so far as I know, the
bridge you built for us last spring has given universal satisfaction. In general appearance we like it, and have detected no perceptible trembling about it.
Yours truly, F. D. V. Garretson.
The Berlin Iron Bridge Co., East Berlin, Conn. : Rockland, Me.
Dear Sirs—I received your letter of inquiry in regard to the bridge you built
for us last winter. It gives good satisfaction. Yours truly,
Wm. L. Ulmer, Street Commissioner.
The Berlin Iron Bridge Co.: Weston, Conn.
Gentlemen—Yours of January 28th at hand. In reply would say, that the inn
bridge, built for the town of Weston by the Berlin Iron Bridge Company, has given
good satisfaction. We have never heard one word of fault found with it, and all
say we have got a first-rate bridge. Yours truly,
M. V. B. Rowland, Chairman Selectmen.
EAST BERLIN, CONNECTICUT, U. S. A.
