Title

An Act for Regulation of Ordinaries

Subject

An Example of Colonial Law on Taverns

Description

Laws from New Jersey, 1709, pertaining to the selling of alcohol. This image shows how the government tried to control the prices that taverns and ordinaries could sell their drinks. Other types of goods at the time did not require this regulation, so this shows how the government kept an eye on ordinaries and tried to keep some level of control over them.
