Abstract

Development of the Buffalo Commodity market in the pre-telegraphic period was limited because of delays and uncertainties in information flows. The irregular operation of the telegraph during its first year restricted its value for market operators. By the middle of 1847, however, its reliability had improved, thus facilitating the operation of the market.
