    Excerpt from Eighth Annual Report of the Secretary of the Massachusetts Board of Agriculture: Together With Reports of Committees Appointed to Visit the County Societies; With an Appendix Containing an Abstract of the Finances of the County Societies, for 1860

    The difficulties which existed in the outset have not diminished, as the work has gone on, and its extent has opened. Where there was at first apathy there is now alarm. The calls to investigate districts where the slightest suspicion rests, are incessant. Discoveries of recent exposure are numerous; and already the Commissioners fear that, in Spite of their untiring efforts to pursue every animal that can possibly have carried the disease with him, and to extirpate every vestige of his path, some may have escaped them, and have carried the disease beyond their reach. In addition to this, herds that have been confined through the winter are now roaming over the pastures, and unless the infection is checked at once, no man can tell the devastation which must attend its course as it goes on from one enclosure to another, eluding the strictest vigilance and defying the most careful investigation.

    In spite of all obstacles, the Commissioners have not hesitated to go to the fullest extent of their powers in the discharge of their duty. They have destroyed all that gave the slightest appearance of disease, from the poor man's single cow to the large and choice collections of the most extensive farmers. They have explored every spot which has been brought to their notice as having been in any way exposed, and have endeavored to ascertain the limits beyond which it seems impossible that the disease can have progressed.
