Joint Select Comm. on Construction of a Mill Dam. Report, 1832
House No. 51 A Joint Select Committee examined a petition to build a tidal dam, but the Boston & Roxbury Mill Corporation in 1814 had been granted a
similar privilege in the vicinity which would hinder the present petitioners. The Boston & Roxbury Mill dam was supposed to have been built in three
years; it was eighteen years later with no dam. However, the language in the bill about the project meant the Legislature had to specifically
pressure the corporation to give up its right to build. Until that happened, the petitioners had leave to withdraw their request. The Committee advised
the Legislature to consider better wording in future bills of that type. There was mention of an order, but it was not printed. (Digitized from a
microfilm copy of title originally held by the Massachusetts State Library).
Title:   The joint select committee, to whom was referred the petition of James Hall and others, and the remonstrance of the Boston and Roxbury Mill Dam Corporation, have attended to the duty assigned them, and report.
