Incorporated in Maine in 1907, the Telepost Company was an independent telegraph company using the rapid system of telegraphy invented by Patrick B. Delaney. The company operated between Chicago, St. Louis, Indianapolis, Louisville and other cities in the west. Rates were a quarter for 25 words and a nickel for each additional 10 words when the message was delivered by messenger; and 50 words for a quarter when the message was sent by wire and delivered to the post office in a sealed envelop. That's how they came up with the name "Telepost"....Telegraph and Post Office.ME-Maine Telephone and Telegraph Companies Female Subject Lightning Bolts
