At 2 o’clock yesterday afternoon Mrs. Mary E. Lapham of No. 46 East 67th Street received a parcel.
At 3 o’clock Inspector Owen Eagan was plunging the package in the bathtub.
And at 4 o’clock, after an hour’s gentle handling of the parcel, he brought forth its contents, a bottle of preserved fruits.
Mrs. Lapham is the widow of John L. Lapham, a broker.
