1844: Hartford and Middletown Express

We are much pleased to see that an Express has been established between this place and Middletown, for the transaction of business of every kind. Cases, bundles and packages of goods, forwarded. Notes, drafts and bills collected with promptness and despatch, and at the lowest possible rates. We were about going to Middletown a few days since on business, when a thought struck us. “Send by Express”–we went over to the office, and our business was done up, and money saved. We would advise all having business there, to “go and do likewise.”–Hartford Jour.

From the Springfield Republican (Springfield, Massachusetts), Tuesday, December 10, 1844.
