G. F. HOGAN Sept. 4, 1928.

ENVELOPE Filed Sept. 27, 1927 INVENTOR ATTORNEYS Patented Sept. 4, 1928.

GEORGE FRANCIS HOGAN, CHICAGO, ILLINOIS.

ENVELOfE.

, Application filed September 27, 1927. Serial No. 222,280.

This invention relates to envelopes for dociunents and more especially to envelopes having two separate pockets. The envelope as hereinafter described may be used with h advantage for insurance policies and accompanying receipt books in which the payment of premiums is recorded. It may, however, provide an enclosure for various other paers. In so-called industrial insurance wherein the premiums are collected weekly by an agent or collector, it is customary to note the payment of the premium in a receipt book which is furnished with the policy. Much difficulty is experienced because the receipt book is frequently 'mislaid by the insured and the agent or collector is often obliged to wait while the missing book is hunted.

It is the object of the present invention to provide an envelope or receptacle in which both the policy and the receipt book may be placed conveniently so that both are readily available.

A further object of the invention is the T provision of a strong envelope of simple construction having two pockets, each of which is readily accessible.

Other objects and advantages of the invention will be apparent as it is better understood by reference to the following specification and accompanying drawing, in which Fig. 1 is a plan View of an envelope embodying the invention; and

Fig. 2 is a plan view of the blank from which the envelope is formed.

Referring to the drawing, the envelope comprises a rear wall 5 and intermediate and front walls 6 and 7 formed by the respective flaps indicated by the same numerals in Fig. 2 of the drawing. The fia s 6 and 7 are folded as indicated and the ree edge of the flap 7 is secured by gum to the underlying portion of the flap 6 adjacent the fold. Two pockets are thus formed between the walls 5, 6 and 7 and are completed b folding a flap 8 at the bottom of the enve ope so that it overlies the walls 6 and 7. The flap 8 is secured by gum. Preferably the lower edge of the wall 7 is cut diagonally as indicated at 9 so that the gum adheres to both the walls 6 and 7 to hold the former securely in lace.

As will be observed by reference to ig. 1, the walls 6 and 7 are thumb-cut to expose and permit easy access to the contents of the separate pockets. The thumb-cutting of the wall 7 is considerably deeper than that of the wall 6 to facilitate the intended use of the envelope.

The wall 5 may. conveniently have a tab 10 w1th an opening '11 therein. This permits hanging of the envelope on a hook or nail in an acceslble place where the contents will be available when needed.

In utilizing the envelope for insurance purposes the insurance policy maybe dis-- posed 1n the pocket between the walls 5 and 6 and the receipt book may be placed similarly in the pocket between the walls 6 and 7. Both may be exposed by the thumb-cutting so that either or both may be withdrawn readlly for examination or for the entry of data concerning the payment of premiums.

The envelope may be used for the storage of other related or unrelated documents and affords a simple and safe storage receptacle for such papers. The shape and proportions as well as the details of construction of the envelope may be varied within the scope of the accompanying claims without departing from the invention or sacrificing any of the advantages thereof.

I claim 1. An envelope having two separate pockets formed by a rear wall and intermediate and front walls consisting of overlapping lateral flaps each substantially the width of the rear wall, the free lateral edge of the 'litermediate wall being unattached to the other walls, the free lateral edge of the front wall being gummed at the lateral edge of the envelope and a flap closing the bottom of the envelope, the lower edge of the front wall being cut away to expose a portion of the intermediate wallto the bottom-closing flap and the bottom-closing flap being gummed to both the front and intermediate walls.
