Letter dated July 19, 1917 from Attorney General Langer to W. C. Heath requesting samples of Malta and similar beverages be purchased with witnesses present and forwarded to [Food Commissioner] E. F. Ladd for analysis.
Langer references Heath's letter of July 17th, which included among other labels one for the beverage "Malta," which Langer believes is intoxicating. He gives instruction for purchasing samples and forwarding them to Food Commissioner E. F. Ladd.
Langer also requests that Heath purchase of cider, as he wishes to stop the sale of hard cider in the state. He asks Heath to keep track of all money spent for the various samples and them them in a bill to the county commissioners, who will pay them.
