Description

Letter dated July 19, 1917 from Food Commissioner and North Dakota Agricultural College president E. F. Ladd to Attorney General Langer regarding analysis of samples of malt beverage "Malta." Ladd explains that earlier samples showed as high as 0.45% alchohol content, but that more recent samples have shown around 0.10%, leading him to believe that the manufacturer has been cutting down that alcohol in their manufacturing process.

Ladd adds that he "should be very glad to make analysis of any samples that you might submit because of the variations that have been found in the the samples [...] during the past three months."
