RARA-AVIS: Origin of Postman title

Someone on another list pointed out the source for the POSTMAN title that I remembered. It's from William Marling:

"Two aspects of the trial caught Cain's attention especially. Without his knowledge, Snyder took out personal injury insurance on her husband for fifty thousand dollars and double indemnity in case of death. She instructed the postman to deliver payment coupons only to her, ringing the doorbell twice as a signal. This sign and "double indemnity" became commonplaces for sexual duplicity."
