I lVhile herein the description refers tol v minute details of the invention, I do not limit myself to these as thedetails of construction and combination may be greatly v varied without departing from the spirit and scope of the invention.
In the annexed drawing forming a part of this specification in which like reference characters refer to like parts throughout the several views and which 'are forillustrative purposesJ only and therefore not drawn to any particular scale,'Figure 1 shows a portion of an envelop strip having one envelop complete and portions of adjacent envelopsy attached thereto; Fig. 2 is a similar View showing the envelop paper folded out Hat; Fig. 3 is a sectionalV view taken on the line 3 3 of Fig. 1; Fig. 4`is a similar view taken on the line 4f-4 of Fig. 1; and Fig. 5 is a perspective View showing the envelops corn- .prising a strip formed into a roll.
As shown, my invention comprises a Series of envelops fastened together to form a strip, which may be formed into a roll. For
the purpose of this description, I have shown an envelop 1 attached;tojladjacentenvelops 2 and 3. The envelop- 1 4comprises a face or. address receiving vportio'n 4, having a flap 5 foldingly connected to the upper edge thereof. The. flap 7 of the adjacent envelop is of the same continuous piece of paper as the portion 4,.b ut has perforated connections v8 therewith, whereby the flap 7 may be easily torn from the envelop 1. The
venvelop l has a` back portion 9 which is a little larger at its lowerA and at its free side edge than the portion 4, whereby are formed extensions 10 and 11, which .are
adapted to be folded as at 12 over upon the i portion 9, and saidextension 9 `is` folded as riers may be provided attached to typewriting machines, whereby the envelops may be conveniently drawn through the carriage for addressing said envelops.
Having thus' described my invention what I claim as new and desire to secure by Letters-Patent, is
A series of envelops stamped out from a continuous strip of paper and comprising face portions having a back portion at one end of each of said face portions, said back portions being each provided-at' one side and 'at their bottom portions with scored eXL tensions to. permit of said .backepo'rtionsbeing'folded over on the body portions and secured' thereto by said extensions sealing v flaps connected to'each of the lower edges of vthe face portions having perforations which permit of each envelop being tearable 'from said bottom portions ofeach adjacent envelop, and said series of envelops adapted to be wound in a roll.
In testimony whereof I have hereunto .set
myhand in presence .of two subscribing witnesses. y
