House. Act on wool inspection, 1826
This document is on legal size paper and in an altogether different font. Page 2 is nearly unreadable because it wiggled during filming. H.R.-No. 4
An act to provide for the stapling and inspection of wool, 1826. The Governor was to appoint a wool inspector who had to give bond for good
performance. That inspector could appoint deputies who also had to give bond. The inspector could require a certain level of cleanliness in the wool
presented for inspection. The fleece was divided into three grades: superfine, fine, and ordinary. From page 2, some guesses as to text: the wool was
bagged, labeled, and returned to the owner, the inspector was to keep records of his and his deputies' work, there were penalties for counterfeiting tags.
P. 3: The inspectors were fined if they stapled and labeled without actually looking at the wool. The inspector could charge a fee for his services
and was entitled to a small percentage of the deputies' fees as well. (Digitized from a microfilm copy of title originally held by the Massachusetts
State Library).
