Specification of Letters Patent No. 24,255, dated May 31, 1859.

To all whom it may concern:

Be it known that I, THOMAS S. WILLIAMS, of the city of Enterprise, in the county of Clark and State of Mississippi, have invented a new and useful machine or apparatus, it being intended to serve as a frame for a mosquito and y netting over beds, childrens cribs, or pallets when placed on the floor and being so constructed as to admit of extension or contraction and unconnected with any thing else; and I do hereby declare that the following is a full, clear, and exact description of the construction and operation of the same, reference being had to the annexed drawing in perspective, making a part of this specification, in which the lines designated by the letters a c d, le f' a, a g L d, and @Z i a represent Wire ribs so constructed as to loop together at the ends and act as hinges in the center of the base.

f y' g Z), and m 7c Z fn, are cords secured to the ribs extending from the lower ribs over and across the top of the upper ones, lengthwise the frame, so as to hold them in proper.V

position. The cord z' 71. is also extended to e and c of the lower rib, but is only represented from z' to L in the drawing.

In large frames the ribs a y' i d, and l L g a are attached to loops formed in the lower ribs at 0 Q, and p 7", and an extra rib is added and placed perpendicular in the center at a and CZ. The waving lines are intended to represent the netting with which the frame is covered for the purpose of keeping off mosquitos and flies, the whole apparatus being so constructed that it may be closed up into small space when not in use.

`What I claim, and desire to secure by Letters Patent, as my invention, is-

The folding mosquito net or bar, constructed substantially as described.
