Transcript THE BERLIN IRON BRIDGE COMPANY, The Berlin Iron Bridge Co., East Berlin, Conn. : Hudson, N. H. Gentlemen—Your favor of the 17th, with bill for balance due company on Taylor's Falls Bridge, was received. I handed the bill to the treasurer, and he will immediately forward the amount, if he has not done so already. As the bridge is now virtually completed, a few words expressive of my opinion may not be out of place at this time. When we contracted for the bridge last spring, we expected a good, permanent structure; but that now it is completed, I can say that our expectations have been more than realized; it is a better bridge than I expected, in many respects, and in saying this I know I express the sentiments of all the committee, both that for this town and for Nashua. I believe the contract to be carried out in good faith, not only in the main, but in all the details, and in some respects exceeded. Where many contractors would have undertaken to have cut corners, your company have been perfectly square, and this has been done mainly without any urging or pressure from the committee. During the erection of the bridge I was present nearly every clay, and saw its different parts put together, and the connections made and fastened, and everything seemed to be done in the most thorough manner possible. I consider it to be a permanent, durable structure, and not only a lasting honor to the Berlin Iron Bridge Co., that built it, but also to the committee that had it in charge, and to the town of Hudson and the city of Nashua. And I feel myself personally, and in behalf of the committee, and the town of Hudson and city of Nashua, under obligations to you, for the gentlemanly treatment we have received, and for the faithful manner in which you have executed the contract. Yours truly, Kimball Webster, Chairman Committee for the town of Hudson, and Civil Engineer. The Berlin Iron Bridge Co., East Berlin, Conn. : NASHUA, N. H. Gentlemen—In behalf of the committee of the city of Nashua, I most heartily endorse what Mr. Kimball Webster says in his letter of the 21st. Yours truly, J. W. Howard, Chairman of Committee of Nashua, N. H. The Berlin Iron Bridge Co., East Berlin, Conn. : NASHUA, N. H. Gentlemen—I take pleasure in saying that I believe the statement made by Kimball Webster, Esq., of Hudson, in his letter to you dated January 21, 1882, is correct in every particular, so far as my knowledge extends. Yours respectfully, Benj. Fletcher, Jr., Mayor. 77/,? Berlin Iron Bridge Co.: Falmouth, Me. Gentlemen—Your favor received, and am happy to be able to comply with your request, and I trust in a satisfactory manner. Since the erection of our bridge I have never heard a word in regard to it except in its praise. It is a new thing with us, and consequently has been discussed very freely, and from all I have heard from our town people, and from the people from adjacent towns, and also from railroad men, the verdict from all is the same. A very nice, pleasing, and substantial bridge. It gives eminent satisfaction, and from my own knowledge (being present all the time during its erection, and seeing how nicely everything fitted together) I have no hesitation in saying that I think the Berlin Parabolic Iron Bridge superior to any other that I have ever seen, comprising, as it does, great strength, beauty of outline, and nicety of finish. James E. Merrill, Chairman Selectmen. The Berlin Iron Bridge Co. : Whately, Mass. Gentlemen—We can truly say that we are very much pleased with the Parabolic Truss Bridge you erected for our town last summer. Our people all speak well of it. A citizen from a neighboring state gave it quite a thorough examination, and said that he had seen a great many iron bridges in his travels, but had seen nothing that suited him as well as your Parabolic Truss Bridge, and should advise his town to use your bridge in preference to any other. Previous to contracting for your bridge we examined bridges made by other companies, and although we paid you more money than was asked by other companies, we consider it money well invested, and have never regretted our decision, which was unanimously in favor of your Parabolic Truss Bridge. Yours truly, C. G. Crafts, \ Wm. Barnard, >• Selectmen of Whately. E. A. Warner, J The Berlin Iron Bridge Co. : Willsboro, N. Y. Gentlemen—Your letter of recent date, asking me how I like your bridges after one year's trial, has been received. I will say that they are by far the best bridges in Northern New York; this is the unanimous opinion of every one who has seen them, as far as I can learn. We do not have any sign up forbidding any one to " Ride or drive on this bridge faster than a walk under $5 fine." Our town people all look with pride and pleasure at this beautiful bridge, and why ? because it possesses the three special qualities: strength, rigidity, and it is an ornamental construction. It is nearly as rigid as our noted Adirondack mountains. Anyone wishing any information I can give in regard to your bridge can get it by dropping me a line. Yours respectfully, A. Currier, Com. of Highways. The Berlin Iron Bridge Co. : Clinton, Conn. Gentlemen—The bridge you built between the towns of Clinton and Madison, some four years ago, has given universal satisfaction to those using it, and we recommend your work to those in need of similar bridges. C. E. Watrous, 1 c , „. ^ S. Leander Stevens,) Selectmen. EAST BERLIN, CONNECTICUT, U. S. A.
