The bakers of Mobile were lately all arraigned, convicted and fined $15 each, for vending loaves of bread from five to seven ounces lighter than is required by the assize. The fraternity were stubborn, and attempted to retaliate by not furnishing any bread to the citizens The course did not succeed, and they were notified that unless they furnish bread enough to supply the demand the following morning, their licenses would be revoked. There have been no complaints since, either for the want of bread nor of the weight of the loaves. 

Boston Traveler, August 14, 1827
