:snconri' anama smurf I Application filed January 80, ,1928. Serial Ito. 615309. I

To all whom it may concern Be it known that I, WILLIAM lines 8, 10 and 12 as a bin e. This laces E.'SwANso1 ,'the-end of the sheet and t e portion Qin a citizen ,of the United States, and a res1- juxtaposition and superposed relation to the dent of Weehawken, county of Hudsbn, State 4 5 of New Jersey, have invented certain new and useful Improvements in Record Mailing Sheets, of which the following is a full, clear, and exact description.

Among the principal objects which the present invention has in view are: To provide means for verifying a written record; to secure for a record the mailing date thereof; to provide means whereby an authorized a ency may impart to a record 1 an authenticating date.


Figure 1 is-a side view of a paper sheet of the character mentioned, the same being dis osed in full extended relation;

igure 2 is a side edge view of the same, showing the parts thereof as in the act of being folded.

Description. As seen in the drawings, a properly shaped sheet of paper is scored for folding on the lines 7, 8, 9, 10, lland 12, said lines being disposed ap roximately equal distances apart, thereby forming sections of approximately the same dimensions. Attached to the sections bounded by the lines 7 and 8 and 8- and 9 are small pieces of carbon transfer paper 13 and'14wrespectively. These pieces are preferably adhered at the. edges 15 and 16 thereof, adjacent the outer margins of the sections with which they are associated.

In service and while the record is being made on the outspread sheet, the pieces 13 and 14 are folded back or outward from the sheet to avoid interferingwith the record being made thereon. When the record is made the said pieces are folded back to the position shown in Figure 1 of the drawings.

Tho -sheet is then folded as indicated in Figure '2. That is, the sheet is primarily bent on the lines 9 and 11 to fold as indicated in Fi re 2. Wlfn-the fold has been made as in icated it will be found that the fold on the line 11 is, juxtaposed to the line 7 while the lines 10 and 12 are superposed on the lines 8. The folded sheet is then again folded, using the sections indicated by the folds coincident with the lines 7 and 11. Ifnor to making the last described fold the slde flaps 17 are-overturned on and adhered to the section of the sheet outside the line 12 at the extreme end thereof. When the last. fold is made the end flaps 17 are in line with-the end flaps 18'of the envelope. The end fla s 18 are then overturned upon and adhere to the folded sheet, there now remainmg only need to close and secure the flap 19in the usual manner? It W111 now be observed that the pieces of carbon transfer paper'indioated by the numerals 13 and 14 are disfi'ose'd in position to be struck by the canoe stamp ofthe sheet having ing and dating een properlytstamped and mailed is passed through the. proper bureau.

This stamp is, by means of the pieces 13 and 14, transferred to the sheet on which the I'GCOIdsiS made and erchance upon porostal authorities, when the tions ofjthe said recor thereby imparting Y to the sheet and to the record. a date not controlled by or subject to change by the maker of the record. Thus it will be seen that even though the record is'made by an interested party and addressed to himself,

n. will be understood that and thesheet has been properly folded the back of the sheet resembling the usual'mailing envelope is addressed to the party to .whoni-theiijec- 0rd isto be sent and placed in the Grovernment mails. In due course it will be understood the missile passes through the Government ofiice where the stamp is cancelled. The stamp used for cancelling the same carrying a date'i'thisis imparted-to'the sheet through the medium of the pieces 13 and "/4 Olaz'm. a A record sheet comprising the combination of an envelope blank formed for folding and sealing with a carbon transfer slip substantially rectangular in forna and secured at oneside thereof to a portion of one edge of the front portion of said blank when folded, anda substantially rectangular relatively large carbon transfer slip Se.-

eured along one s1de thereof in opposite disposition to the secured side of said first named slip to a portion of the side edge to clear the line 0 writing spaces formed on the record portion of said blank, and for dis osition within said blank with their free en 5 in overlapped relation when said blank is folded and sealed.
