Excerpt from Statistical Tables: Exhibiting the Condition and Products of Certain Branches of Industry in Massachusetts, for the Year Ending April 1, 1837

In obedience to the provisions of the Act of the 19th of April last, I have the honor to submit an Abstract of the Returns of the Assessors of all the Towns and Cities in the Commonwealth, concerning certain branches of industry.

I have, in the first instance, presented a sketch of the return received from each city and town; then an Abstract, by counties, of the answers to the questions proposed in the Act; next an Abstract, by counties, of the statements of the Assessors in addition to their answers; and finally, a condensed Summary of the whole.

The Assessors of many of the towns have confined themselves, or nearly so, to rendering answers to the questions proposed; while others have taken pains, in addition to their answers, to gather and present the statistics of other branches of industry, some of which are well known to be carried on in towns whose returns do not allude to them. Had the Assessors, in all cases, been equally particular in their inquiries and returns, it is believed that the aggregates would have been considerably greater than those exhibited in these tables.

The raw materials used in many of the specified manufactures, are the produce of other parts of the world. The value of these, I have, of course, no means of determining with accuracy. Sufficient, however, on these points, is known, to render it probable that the additional value given to those raw materials, by the creative industry of our fellow-citizens, is at least equal in amount to the entire crops of any of those States, whose staple articles constitute the most prominent objects of our national export.
