Gentlemen—The universal verdict in regard to the bridge you built for us
last season is "the best I ever saw." Personally, I wish to say something in appreciation of your promptness in fulfilling the contract on your part. The time given
you was very short, and the circumstances such that the public would have been
greatly inconvenienced by delay on your part. Respectfully yours, etc.,

Gentlemen—Your letter of some days since was duly received. We now have
nine iron bridges in this town built by your company, and one a Pratt truss, built
by another company. The fact that the contract for our new iron bridge in 1888,
was awarded to your company, several others competing for it, shows that after
years of trial, we still consider your bridges among the best. The Parabolic truss
recommends itself to us for its pleasing appearance as well as for its strength and
durability. Yours truly, A. C. Collins, Chairman of Selectmen.
