Although mail was being distributed in some cases by stagecoach, the service was slow, drivers were immature and undependable, and robberies were frequent. John Palmer proposed quicker delivery accompanied by guards, at a slightly higher cost. After a week's trial the new plan was accepted. Palmer's troubles weren't over, but he and his system survived. 109 pp.
