Buying in the markets to sell again is a costly luxury even with extortioners. Not only can the articles furnished be confiscated to the city, but the buyer can be heavily fined. It this ordinance could be enforced our citizens would be greatly befitted, but there are so many ways to evade it, and so many witnesses always ready to swear to convenience, that the Clerks and the price find its enforcement an up hill business.
