In my 1938 Southeastern Greyhound Lines timetable, there were four daily departures Louisville to Memphis via Nashville and two additional via Henderson, Ky. The fastest left Louisville at 11 a.m. and arrived in Memphis (via Nashville) at 11:45 p.m. I doubt that travel times were much faster in 1943 although there were probably more departures due to wartime demand.
