SAFETY SHIPPING BAG. No. 353,692. Patented Dec. 7, 1886.

flttorng: I I




SPECIFICATION forming part of Letters Patent No. 353,692, dated December'l, 1886.

Application filed January 9, 1886. Serial No. 188,149. (No model.)

To all whom it may concern:

Be it known that I, GUsrAvE HUGEE MA- GEE, a citizen of the United States of America, residing at New Orleans, in the parish of Orleans and State of Louisiana, have invented certain new and useful Improvements in Safety Shipping-Bags, ofwhich the following is a specification, reference being had therein to the accompanying drawings. 1

My invention relates to improvements in the construction of that class of bags wherein, for safety during shipment, a double envelope is provided, the inner one being formed of paper, so as to prevent any of the contents from escaping, and the outer one being formed of burlap or other fabricto protect the paper interior from being torn during. shipment.

My invention is illustrated in the accompanying drawings, wherein- Figure 1 illustrates the manner of uniting the two envelopes in the manufacture of the bag. Fig. 2 represents a front elevation, partially broken away, of the finished bag. Fig. 3 represents a broken cross sectional view upon the line 3 3 of Fig. 2.

Similar letters indicate similar throughout the several views.

A represents the inner envelope of paper. It is formed of a sheet of paper folded upon itself at the edge F.

B represents the outer envelope,of burlap or similar fabric, formed of a single piece folded in like manner at the edge G.

The two pieces A B, after being folded as described, are placed together; as shown in Fig. 1, and united by means of the stitching C, said stitching being carried up to the top of the paper envelope, as shown. The hand is then inserted within the envelope B until the corner is grasped and pulled through the top of the envelope B, thereby turning envelope B inside out with respect to its position, as shown in Fig. 1, and causing the paper envelope to be inclosed eircumferentially by the cloth envelope B, the two occupying the relative positions shown in Figs. 2 and 3. The material parts to be shipped is then placed within the envelope A, and is then ready for transporta: tion.

It will be observed that the edges of the two envelopes beyond the stitching G are, when the bag is in position for use, as shown in Figs. 2 and 3, included between the inner and outer envelopes. By means of this construction the interior of the envelope A is practically smooth, as is also the exterior of the envelope B. Any material, moreover, which might accidentally escape from the inner envelope through the seam would fall into the space between the envelopes and would not be so liable to be lost.

I have shown in the drawings the paper envelope as extending beyond the envelope of fabric. This construction enables me to print an advertisement, address, or the like upon the exposed part of the paper envelope in such position as to be seen.

I am aware that bags having a paper intorior envelope and an exterior envelope of fabric have been heretofore proposed, and I do not broadly claim the same as of my invention; but

\Vhat I do claim, and desire to secure by Letters Patent, is-

1. A safety shipping-bag of the kind described, consisting of an inner envelope, A, and an outer envelope, B, each formed of a single piece and united along two of their edges by the stitching O, substantially as described. A

2. A safety shipping-bag of the kind described, consisting of the inner envelope, A, and the outer envelope, B, united by the edgestitching O, the edges of said envelopes be yond the stitching 0 being included between the two envelopes, substantially as described.

In testimony whereof Iaffix my signature in presence of two witnesses.
