We therefore respectfully petition your Honorable Body, to pass such ordinances as will prohibit the sale of such milk, and that such ordinances provide for the appointment of an inspector with the necessary powers to prohibit the sale and distribution of all such milk, and all other unhealthy milk, and condemn the same. And your petitioners will ever pray.
The sale of swill and malt fed milk is injurious to health and is the cause of a great number of the deaths from cholera infantum.
