This invention relates to improvements in memorandum pads, the general object of the invention being to provide means for holding` a pad upon the wrist of one hand in a posltion where lit may be written upon bythe other hand.

Another object of the invention is to provide means for replacing the pad by a new one when the sheets ofthe old one have been used up.

rlfhis invention also consists in certain other features of construction and in the combination and arrangement of the several parts, to be hereinafterfully described, illustrated inthe accompanying drawings and specifically pointed out in the appended claims. l' i In describing my invention in detail, reference will be had to the accompanying drawings whereinA like characters denote like or corresponding parts throughout the several views, and in which Figure l is a view showing the invention in use.

Figure 2 is a detail view of the device.

Asshown in these views the device consists of a plate 1 having a reduced extension 2 at one end thereof, both'the plate and its extension being provided with a suitable covering 3.
