Hull Packet 1771 - York Coaches

--
YORK COACHES

The proprietors of the COACHES now running between HULL and YORK, return thanks to the public for their liberal support, and inform them, that for the better accommodation of passengers, and greater safety in the conveyance of parcels, they have, at their own expense, appointed GUARDS to go with the Coach all the way; and, to give their expedition to travelling, have added extra barfes. The expences of these arrangements being properly considered by the proprietors, they ae necessitated to fix the following rates, which they hope will be thought reasonable:
