-Through the efforts of George T. Peabody and Postmaster E.E. Morrison, Chandler will receive better mail facilities.

In the future, Chandler will receive mail from the coast one day earlier.  A through pouch will be sent from Wickenburg and the same will be done from Phoenix.  Both pouches will be sent to Mesa, and be sent to Chandler on the first train out.

Before the mail had to be repouched in Mesa which would delay it a day.  Mail being sent out of Chandler would take two or three days days before arriving in Los Angeles.  (Chandler Arizonan 4/4/1913)
