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
