ENACTED BY THE
LEGISLATURE OF MASSACHUSETTS
CITY OF CAMBRIDGE,
A LIST OF PUBLIC STATUTES AND PARTS OF STATUTES REQUIRING
DATES OF SUCH ACCEPTANCES.
The statutes herein printed were compiled by Judge William H. Orcutt, in connection with the recent revision of the city ordinances, and under the direction of the committee on ordinances, of the year 1889. The work has been for some time in progress, but the obvious fact that great care was required in its preparation, may very properly be urged in justification of the seemingly long delay in its publication. The compilation includes all the statutes of this Commonwealth relating to the city of Cambridge, or in any way affecting its interests, that have been enacted between the years 1780 and 1890 and inclusive. A list of such statutes as have required acceptance by the city in order to render them operative, together with the dates of their respective acceptances, will be found at the end of the book.
Although many of these statutes have long since become obsolete, all such have à certain historic value, and their present publication will be found useful as subjects of reference, not only to the City Council but to all citizens who are interested in the growth and prosperity of our city.
