991067 Seattle, Washington. July 9th 1891.

To The Honorable City Council, of the City of Seattle.

Gentlemen: We the undersigned, producers or consumers of milk, sold in and about the City of Seattle, hereby respectfully petition your Honorable Body, and respectfully submit as follows: That we are informed that a large quantity of the milk, sold in and about the city of Seattle, is milk produced from cows fed on malt, after being used by the breweries for the purposes of brewing beer; that it is a known fact, that the milk produced from such feed is very injurious and conducive to disease, more especially the ailments in which infants are affected; that we are also informed and believe that such malt or swill milk, which is now being used in the said City and vicinity, is produced from Six-hundred cows, which are fed upon the refuse made from the breweries. The milk from this number of cows form a large portion of the supply at present sold and distributed to the families in the City of Seattle. The sale of this malt or swill milk is prohibited in all well regulated Cities of the United States and should be prohibited in the City of Seattle.

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.
