SEE ALSO 52339 Senate No. 32 A Special Committee on Licensed Houses considered: An Act for the due regulation of licensed houses and submitted a
new draft on March 14, 1832. An Act for the due regulation of licensed houses, 1832. An innholder or any person who sold alcohol had to be licensed.
A retailer had to be licensed and could never sell alcohol by the drink for local consumption. A common victualler had to be licensed and could not
be open on the Lord's Day or after 10 pm. Local jurisdiction could sell the licenses to be renewed yearly; the text of a license was included. Inns
had to have food, lodging, and stabling, and a big sign near the door. There was to be no gaming, and anyone visibly drunk could not be served. The
courts would not recognize claims for damages when the innholder allowed someone to drink on credit. Local jurisdictions can notify licensees to bar
someone. The division of fines was laid out. All older laws were repealed. (Digitized from a microfilm copy of title originally held by the
Massachusetts State Library).

Merriam and others, inhabitants of the town of Marblehead, concerning license laws, and to whom was committed the bill "for the due regulation of licensed houses, and to repeal all former laws on the subject," have had the same under consideration, and report the bill in a new draft.
