In doing this, it was passed through a sieve into the measure; and if any thing caused the floor to far in the least so as to settle it, it was emptied out and sifted again into the measure. It of course now was perfectly dry. But when the rule was adopted that a bushel should way [sic] 50 lbs, the salt was left so wet that it would drip along the road, as it was carried home.> 12CC128
