From the Illustrated Sporting and Dramatic News, Saturday 4 August 1877.

It is with great pleasure we announce the fact that Mr. Boulter, the gentleman who has been so successfully running the "Orleans" coach between the New Orleans Club at Twickenham and London, has, with a party of very influential friends, arranged to run the coach from the "Granville," St. Lawrence on Sea, to Canterbury, commencing on 6th August next. The coach will start at ten o'clock daily, and will take up passengers en route to the "White Hart Hotel," Margate, and again at the "Beach House Hotel," Westgate on Sea, at which place the horses will be changed. It will then proceed by Upstreet and Sarre to Canterbury. This will be a very great addition to the pleasures already so plentifully showered upon visitors to the Isle of Thanet, as it is a well-known and undoubted fact that a finer team of horses or a better appointed coach does not run out of London.
