Transcript THE BERLIN IRON BRIDGE COMPANY, The Berlin Iron Bridge Co. : Orwell, N. Y. Gentlemen—The bridge that we bought of you, and erected by Mr. Cooley the last season, is the first iron bridge in the town, and has been examined and watched very closely, since it was erected, by our people and those of other towns, and they all say it is as nice a bridge as they ever saw, and they call it a beauty. Yous truly, Henry Hilton, Com. of Highways. Since above was written, we have built another bridge in this town for a new board of town officers. The Berlin Iron Bridge Co.: Newport, N. H. Gentlemen—The iron bridge which your Company put in this town in December, 1886, is in every way a first-class bridge, and our town is well pleased with the same. Yours very truly, Milton S. Jackson, Chairman Selectmen. Since above was written, we have built another bridge in this town for a new The Berlin Iron Bridge Co.: Weston, Vt. Gentlemen—I improve this opportunity to write to you in regard to the iron bridge you built for us last fall. We are well satisfied with the bridge. It is fully up to the contract, and I can recommend your bridge to any town in need of an iron bridge, and vour Company as one that will do all that you agree to do. Yours respectfully, W. W. Manning, Chairman Selectmen. The Berlin Iron Bridge Co. : West Haven, Vt. Gentlemen—The bridge put up for us by the Berlin Iron Bridge Company (85 feet span) gives good satisfaction in every respect. It is all that it was recommended to be. Yours, etc., R. C. Abell, Chairman of Selectmen. The Berlin Iron Bridge Co.: Philadelphia, N. Y. Gentlemen—Yours of the 8th received. In reply would say, the three bridges erected in our town by the Berlin Iron Bridge Company the past summer, thus far are satisfactory, and are spoken of as strong and symmetrical, and to all appearances will be very durable. Yours truly, Geo. G. White, Com. Highways. Since above was written, we have built another bridge in this town for a new board of town officers. The Berlin Iron Bridge Co.: Barton, Vt. Gentlemen—Yours of the 8th inst. received. The bridge does not come under my every-day observation. I know of no imperfection, and it is highly complimented by those who are familiar with it. While the iron bridge is something expensive to start with, I think that time will prove them to be much the cheapest in the end, and were I to administer to the wants of the town in the future, I should patronize your Iron Bridge Company. Respectfully yours, J. P. Baldwin, Selectman. The Berlin Iron Bridge Co.: Auditor's Office, Shelbyville, Ind. The Board of Commissioners authorize me to say to you that they consider your bridge built in this county one amongst the best, if m>t the best altogether, that has ever been put up by any company for them. I speak in reference to iron bridges only. Respectfully, etc., James Wiles, Auditor. North Adams, Mass. The Berlin Iron Bridge Co. : Gentlemen—We have five of your bridges in our town, also five other bridges built by different companies. Yours are, without doubt, the best bridges we have. Yours respectfully, F. H. Goodrich, Chairman Selectmen. The Berlin Iron Bridge Co.. Plymouth, Conn. Gentlemen—The two iron bridges, built by you in our town some two years since, give perfect satisfaction, and I have yet to hear any expressions in regard to them except in their praise: namely, neat, substantial, and durable. We are much pleased with the concrete covering. At present, the surface is as smooth as when completed, and appears to protect the plank from decay, and makes a very solid structure in connection with the iron bridge. From my present experience, I should recommend concrete. Yours truly, Byron Tuttle, Chairman Selectmen. The Berlin Iron Bridge Co., East Berlin, Conn. : Bristol, Conn. Gentlemen—The iron bridge, you built for us last July, gives entire satisfaction. We think it is the best highway bridge we ever saw. Yours truly, C. L. Frisbie, Chairman Board of Selectmen. We have built two Iron Bridges for this town since above was written. The Berlin Iron Bridge Co., East Berlin, Conn. : Pittfield, Mass. Gentlemen—We are pleased to be able to say to you that the bridge which your company built for the town of Pittsfield last summer, proves very satisfactory to the public. Geo. Y. Learned. The Berlin Iron Bridge Co., East Berlin Conn. : Salem, N. Y. Gentlemen.—The two iron bridges your company built for the town of Salem are models of construction, and are perfectly satisfactory to the tax-payers as well as myself. I am compelled to admit their superiority to the other iron bridges of the town put up by three other companies. Yours truly, Rufus Coon, Commissioner Town of Salem. EAST BERLIN, CONNECTICUT, U. S. A.
