This Date in Wells Fargo History

April 02, 2015

April 2, 1877. Competition can help the consumer. The sharp competition of the U.S. Mail for the carriage of packages of four pounds and under, Wells Fargo supervisor John J. Valentine told all agents, renders a modification of the first three entries under Freight Classification on our Graduated Tariff Card of January 1st desirable. Wells Fargo then raised the value to $50 for packages which could go at the cheapest rate.
