General Court. Act on inspection of beef, pork, fish, butter, hops and tobacco, 1824
On February 4, 1824, the General Court promulgated an Act to streamline the inspection process for beef, pork, fish, butter, hops, and tobacco.
Salted beef, pork, and fish that was inspected at its point of origin and came into the Commonwealth on its way overseas was not to be inspected a second
time. There fines for doing so that applied to the guilty inspector and the Inspector General of the service. For products processed in the
Commonwealth, it was best to weigh the product before salting; a barrel should be 100 pounds. The Inspector General was supposed to visit each inspection
station during the year and do some inspecting himself. The Master of a ship was to carry the form included in the Act to satisfy questions about
inspection of the cargo. A further section repealed the inspection requirement for tobacco. Any pages after page 7 are not present, so perhaps something
about butter appeared there. (Digitized from a microfilm copy of title originally held by the Massachusetts State Library).
