  Eastbound Trips - Third Period
 

April 15, 1861 to June 30, 1861 (#E67 to #E108)


The Second Phase, Third Rate Period

The third rate period of the Pony Express was an interim period between the $2.50 second rate period, and the July 1, 1861 initiation of the Post Office mandated $1 rate period. During the third period, a reduced Pony Express rate of $2 for a one half ounce letter was implemented. Also during this period, Wells Fargo first appeared as agent for the Pony Express and issued the first Pony Express adhesive stamps and franked envelopes to facilitate prepayment.
