Transcript THE BERLIN IRON BRIDGE COMPANY, The Berlin Iron Bridge Co., East Berlin, Conn.: West Haven, Conn. Gentlemen—The bridge at Oyster River, put in position by your company last July, gives complete satisfaction. I heartily commend your company to others for promptness and square dealing in bridge building. Yours truly, Walter A. Mann, Chairman of Selectmen. The Berlin Iron Bridge Co., East Berlin, Conn. : Warehouse Point, Conn. Gentlemen—The bridge which you built for us last August is all right, and deserves a recommend from us. It is substantial and first-class, work done according to contract, which is more than every town can say concerning bridge companies. Yours respectfully, S. D. Rockwell, Selectman. The Berlin Iron Bridge Co., East Berlin, Conn. : New Hartford, Conn. Gentlemen—Your favor of the 14th at hand, and in reply would say, it affords us great pleasure to state that the bridge built by you in this town is giving perfect satisfaction, both to ourselves and the public. Respectfully yours, H. N. Gates, \ Franklin Watson, ^Selectmen. Daniel C. Merrett, I The Berlin Iron Bridge Co., East Berlin, Conn. : Fairfield, Mass. Gentlemen—The bridge you built for us last year is in perfect condition, and we have every reason to believe it to be fully up to your representation. Yours truly, Fairfield Paper Co.

The Berlin Iron Bridge Co., East Berlin, Conn.: Middlefield, Mass. Gentlemen—The bridge which you built for us the past season is perfectly satisfactory in every way. I would recommend the Berlin Iron Bridge as the bridge for towns to purchase. Yours truly, Asher Pease, Chairman of Selectmen. The Berlin Iron Bridge Co., East Berlin, Conn. : Walden, Vt. Gentlemen—It is with pleasure that I enclose you check for #3,500 the balance due on the Highgate bridge. I am more than satisfied with the bridge, and with the manner in which you carried on the work of erecting it. I think it is a credit to your company. I remain, as ever, Yours, H. W. Varnum, State Commissioner. The Berlin Iron Bridge Co., East Berlin, Conn. : STAMFORD, CONN. Gentlemen—Both of the iron bridges that you built for us are giving perfect satisfaction. One of 142 ft. span, 20 ft. roadway, was built in 1887 at the foot of a short sharp hill, and it has withstood perfectly the severe strain to which it has been subjected. The other is of two spans of 57^ feet, and 35 ft. roadway, built last year. We consider your iron bridges the best in the market in principle, material and workmanship. Wm. R. Lockwood, "| J. Woolsey Selleck, \ Selectmen. W. W. Scofield, J Wm. B. Cochrane, Engineer in Charge. The Berlin Iron Bridge Co., East Berlin, Conn. : ORWELL, N. Y. Gentlemen—I can cheerfully recommend your bridges, as we have two in our town, one 150 ft. span, the other about no ft. span, and entirely satisfactory to the town. Yours truly, John Washburn, Highway Commissioner. The Berlin Iron Bridge Co., East Berlin, Conn. : ONEONTA, N. Y. Gentlemen—Yours of the 15th received. Would say that our bridge has been completed to our entire satisfaction, and, as far as I can see, this fills the bill in every way. We have three iron bridges in our town, built by different iron bridge companies, but this one beats them all. Yours respectfully, S. S. Kilborn, Commissioner Highways. The Berlin Iron Bridge Co., East Berlin, Conn.: SHERMAN, N. Y. Gentlemen—Yours of the 15th received and noted, and in reply would say that I consider the bridge that you built for the town of Sherman last summer a good one in every respect. I consider the cylinder piers better in a good many respects than any other kind of abutments, and think I would use them entirely. The town of Sherman has reason to feel proud of the bridge you built. Very respectfully yours, Geo. SANDERSON, Com. Highways. The Berlin Iron Bridge Co., East Berlin, Conn. : MASSENA, N. Y. Gentlemen—Yours of the 15th at hand. In regard to the bridges you speak of, they are giving the best of satisfaction. The bridge at the Springs is said to be, by people visiting at the Springs from all over the United States, the best bridge they ever saw in any place. Yours truly, H. Russell, Com. Highways. The Berlin Iron Bridge Co., East Berlin, Conn. : South Manchester, Conn. Gentlemen—I have your favor of the 14th inst., and take great pleasure in replying that the bridge built for us last summer is perfectly satisfactory in every particular, and more than fulfilled the specifications in the contract.
