i Application filed Julie 9,
ToaZZ whom. itmaj My invention relates in particular I to those envelopes used by paymasters depart-- of samementsin commercial. and industrial institu tions. It need not be confined'to this particular use altho that is the one' preferred usage I shall discuss here.
In monetary transactions between employer and employee, receipts are universally required. The reasons for this are obvious. I
In my many years of observation in matters of money disbursement I have seen many systems which in finalxanalysis may be resolved as follows. A printed, mimeographed or written receipt is used. The
amountof money involved is written in a. suitable place on the receipt. An entirel separate and distinct envelope is use marked in some manner toidentify it. The envelope and receipt are then fastened together with a pin, commercial clip or other temporary fastening means. When the money is disbursed the tem orary fas tening isremoved, the receipt given .to the employee to sign while the distributon holds the envelope pending return of the receipt.
Upon return of the receipt, the distributor pays the employee.
- The cost, lost motion and ceremony pertinent to this system is wasteful. To eliminate most of this waste I'have' conceivedthe envelope shown in\ the illustrative views, in which like figures refer to like parts.
Figure 1 shows a perspective view of one form of my envelope.
Figure 2 shows a development or pattern Figure 3 shows a second type of envelope in perspective.
Figure-1, A represents the envelopeproper, B represents the sealing flap, 0 represents the end of the envelope which is sealed in the manufacture. I have ektended this seal to allow freesection D upon which is printed the receipt. The flapC and receipt 1922. Serial No. 566,986.
D tion to permit ready removal of the receipt D. Theflap and receipt D are printed with like numbers to identify them.
In Figure 2 the same -envelope is shown developed, that is, as a pattern the flaps E I and. F fold in upon eachother and their common contact area is sealed to form of the envelope closure. x In Figure 3 the receipt D is} made as part of the side. of the envelope. instead of part of the end of it. The effect and results are the same in both cases. i
It is obvious that the first savingcomes 1n having to fill in but one receipt since the envelope needs no further identification,
Also the necessity of joining envelope and recelpt is eliminated. In actual use, the envelope correspondlng to any particular are separated by a perforated demarcapart.
eniployee is taken and held by the 'paymaster v I or distributor. The receipt is removed by one quick tearing movement, and. handed to the employee for his signature. It. is signed, returned, and the envelope nuinbered to correspond to the receipt is given to the employee. and effort is appreciable. l Having thus described m r invention- I find the saving of time what I claim and what I 'deslre to. secure.
United States Letters Patent for, is:
' 1. An. envelope, having one surface addi-,
tional to the sealing surface, said surface being an integral-part of said envelope directly attached to that flap of the envelope that is sealed in the process of manufacture; said additional surface being marked asa receipt and being serially numbered to correspond to said envelope; whichadditional surface is substantially a part of, but readily detachable from, said envelope, and which surface is part of the sideor end element of said envelope and so constituted. as to be within the physical I limits of the envelope proper without-beingfolded upon itself.
2.
