Additional Details

This company promised faster mail communication between California and the east. They established an overland express route across Mexico from Vera Cruz to Acapulco, eliminating the Cape Horn passage. This pamphlet establishes the mileage between various points on this overland Mexican route, naming more than 50 stops--some of them villages with populations of 10 or 20. No other examples traced in OCLC or elsewhere.
