UNITED STATES GIBBONS G. SLAUGHTER, OF GREENVILLE, SOUTH CAROLINA.
COMBINATION MEMO AND DIARY.
Specification of Letters Patent.
Patented Dec. 14, 1920.
Application filed August 16, 1918. Serial No. 250,145.
To all whom it may concern:
Be it known that I .GIBBoNs G. SLAUGH- rnn, a citizen of the Ilnited States residing at Greenville, in the county of Cirreenville and State of South Carolina, have invented certain new and useful Improvements in Combination Memos and Diaries, of which the following is a specification.
This invention relates to stationery and more particularly to a combination diary and memo case.
The primary object of this invention resides in the provision of a case having'pockets or compartments for the retention of a diary and memo pad in a protective and convenient position of access.
A still further object of this invention resides in the provision of a case wherein a diary and memo pad is retained for convenient access by an individual without having to destroy a portion of either pad before a smooth writing surface can be obtained', as is impossible where the pads are carried loosely in the pocket of the clothes.
With these and other objects in view this invention resides in certain novel features of construction and disposition of elements which will be hereinafter more fully described and it is desired to have it understood that certain minor changes can be resorted to as come within the scope of the ap ended claim.
11 the accompanying drawings:
Figure 1 is a perspective view of the case having oppositely disposed pad retaining pockets;
Fig. 2 is a central sectional view through the case having opposed pockets with the writing pad therein.
In the present embodiment of this invention, the numeral 18 designates a case which is presented in its preferred form as a book cover. This case is preferably made from a high grade leather but a substitute therefor will perform the paramount functions of its adoption equally as well.
Formed on the inner sides of the case are pockets or compartments 20, the sides 22 of which are securely fastened in any suitable manner along their edges with a portion thereof unsecured for the insertion of the stiff backs 16 of the pads. These pockets have their unsecured portions disposed in opposite directions, as at 24, in order that the pads may be inserted sidewise.
Adapted to be inserted and carried in the aforesaid compartments, is a diary pad 14 and a memo pad 16, the former of which is to be made of a Very thin stuif material for preservation and the latter of a suitable material that can be torn from its backing and destroyed.
Having thus fully described this invention, what I claim is:
In a device of the class described, a cover formed of flexible material of substantially rectangular form adaptedto be bent upon a line extending transversely thereof intermediate its ends to form a pair of leaves of equal size, a compartment upon the inner face of each of said leaves formed by stitching sheets of material thereto, the said sheets being of the same general shape as said leaves, but a trifle shorter and narrower and the said sheets being stitched to their respective leaves along three of their margins, the unstitched margins of said sheets constituting openings for said compartments, the openings being disposed in opposite directions and toward the longitudinal edges of the cover, and pads having stiff backs inserted in said compartments, the said pads being of such dimension as to have their edges spaced inwardly from the edges of said leaves.
In testimony whereof I aflix my signature in the presence of two witnesses.
ALBERT L. HENDERSON, ANNIE GARRAUX.
