There is nothing surprising about a letter delivered the same day in London in 1913, it would be surprising if it were not.

Not only in London, I think the same applied in most British cities and large towns at that time. My great grandparents lived in Bristol, and, according to my grandmother, if my great grandfather was going to be late home from work and he had reasonable notice he would send a postcard.
