"Captain Barry took the speedy mail coach that traveled all night (from Boston in 1841). It made the fastest possible time in order to reach Portland by 10:00 a.m. with the Boston newspapers of the day before. The fare to Kennebunk was $6.00. The trip to that point required seven changes of horses and twelve hours travel time." Norman E. Borden Jr. in "Dear Sarah"
