I have been right much interested In
your crusade against the bogus milk
of Norfolk. While 1 am in favor of a
milk Inspector nnd think the majority
of the dairymen who supply the city
with milk would be in favor of one.
and that there was bogus milk on the
market the first of the present week,
which, from nil accounts, was the
poorest specimen ever offered to anv
people for milk, 1 hardly think that
the supply is as poor ns one would
imagine from readlng your editorial.
I am a dairyman and help to supply
the city with milk, and as a rule only
furnish the milk from my own dairy,
but on special occasions I have to buy
some from dealers, which was the case
on the 24th Instant. And I am B?rry
to say that 1 -got some of that bogus
milk, but not knowingly. The milk
was bought and paid for a week ahead
and I had no thought but that I would
got tho genuine articles. I think as a
rule that the people of Norfolk can get
pure milk and of as fine quality as can
be gotten anywhere, for you can find
good dairies here and kept by gentle?
men of known integrity.
You can find bogus butter also In
unknown quantities, but those who
choose can Und the genuine article. So
1 hope that yoHi will not be too hard .>n
US because you got a little chalk and
water one time. Remember that Christ?
mas comes but onco n. year.
but YOU MAY ITT ME DOWN AS
BEING IN* FAVOR OF A MILK IN?
SPECTOR IN SOME FORM -BOARD
