Letter dated July 23, 1917 from Attorney General Langer to Food Commissioner E. F. Ladd explaining that Langer has decided to arrest everyone who sells W. B. chewing tobacco, provided that Ladd has examined the sample Langer has sent him. Langer calls Ladd's attention to a recent Supreme Court case involving a tobacco called W. B. Right Cut chewing tobacco, whereas the sample Langer sent to Ladd is called W. B. Cut chewing tobacco. Langer asks Ladd whether he has examined the sample and whether in his opinion it is the same as snuff.
