There's a reference to an express arriving on a Sunday in this copy of the Gentlemen's Chronicle, if I am reading the dates correctly.

https://books.google.com/books?id=2voRAAAAYAAJ

For March 8, it says (scan down to the second express mentioned): "Yesterday morning, an express arrived at Lord Weymouth's office" - March 7, 1779 ("yesterday") was a Sunday.

It might have been normal, or a special occasion that warranted breaking "rules". The message was about the sudden death of an earl, who "expired" on the Saturday. So the express rider presumably travelled Saturday night and Sunday morning.

I know this is 30 years before the Regency but it's a small clue!
