    "The first regular meat market in Warsaw was opened by Jacob Boraman. It was in a small frame building, just south of what was known as the first 'tavern', and afterwards the Wright House, and he only asked four cents a pound for round steak. He supplied his market by buying an occasional quarter--sometimes a whole half of a beef--from the farmers who brought it to town for sale and occasionally the old gentleman was short on his supply" - extract from Warsaw Daily Times, 3 Aug 1901 (http://yesteryear.clunette.com/earlytimes080301.html)
