Once upon a time in the West: California Express — "Gold Dust 4-1/2%, on sums over $1,000"

We_pg015_c285

Long before there was Federal Express, companies like Office Berford & Co.'s California Express were happy to deliver your packages across the country.

    Messengers leave New-York and San Francisco by every steamer, with letters, parcels, and packages.

    Freight, 40 cents per lb. Gold Dust, 4-1/2 per cent, on sums over $1000; 5 per cent, on sums under $1000.
