The Lapland will leave New York on next Saturday and will transport mail to Europe which was to have been taken by the Titanic, which was due to sail from New York on that date.
News of the arrangements was telegraphed to Postmaster Campbell this morning. The postmaster also received an announcement that the
Specially addressed correspondence for Europe by way of Havre, France, will close at the New York office at 7 p.m. today and mails for France will close at midnight tonight for the La Bretagne.
