SPEIFICATON forming part of Reissued Letters Patent No. 9,948, dated November .4279, 1881.

Original No, 154,498, dated August 25, 1874.

To all whom tt muy concern:

Be it known that I,OLIVER LONG, ofNew York, in the county of New York and State of New York, have invented a certain new and useful Packing i'or Bottles, dre.; andI do hereby declare that the following` is a full, clear, and exact description 'ot' the invention, such as will enable others skilled in the art to which it appertains to make and use it, reference being had to tlieaccompanying drawings, which form part of this specification, in which- Figure 1 is a side vieu7 of my improved packing or envelope applied to a bottle. Fig. 2 is a top view of an envelope. Fig. 3 is a side View ot'a pad or open envelope.

The object of this invention' novel packing or pad for bottles, Ste., which may be easily and cheaply made, and which will be safe, effective, easily applied, and durable.

The invention consists in the production, as a new article of manufacture, ofa packing composed of a sheet of'paper fluted to givel it body and elasticity,

and another sheet of paper secured to the former to retain it in place. The packing so made may be formed into envelopes,

' pads, or cells, laccording to its method oi' al ilutings,

plication or use, forth. i

For the purposes ot' my invention I take paper ot' any suitable quality, and first size it on one side, allowltlie sizing to drypand then dampen the other side with water and pass it through a machine previously heated, whereby it is tinted, crimped, or embossed. I then pass it over a heated surface; such as a steam or gas heated table or cylinder, which'contracts the ,giving them stiffness and greater strength, and rendering them permanently eiastic. I next, according to, requirements, paste, gine, or otherwise 'attach tothe uted paper, strips or sheets ot' plain paper on one or both sides. After all is dry I cut the packing` material into the required lengths forenvelas hereinafter more fully set is to provide a`f Application for reissue filed August 4, 1881. y

opes, pads; cells, orA other forms of packing. Thev strips or sheets of plain paper, when attached, serve to retain the other sheets in form after being fluted, crimped, or embossed.

In forming envelopes for bottles I unite the edges ofthe tinted paper by eyeletsj-or by adhesive materials, and1 in some cases apply a bottom pad to the samepaper.'

For claret-bottles, Ste., I intend packing sh all surround the neck ofthe bottles, and Ysuggest the propriety of arranging around the inside of the c ase strips or pads tov protect the shoulders of" the bottles. ,d

' For pads I cut up the completed paper in lum the lengths according to thensirzey ofthe bottlesor.

articles, andis'o arrange them as to protect thqe articles from each other, and preserve them from contact with the sides, of the package or casing.

In the accompanying drawings, illustrating my invention, Figs. 1 and 2 represent a bottleenvclope. A designates a sheet of tinted paper, and B designates a strip or sheet of like top, and bottom.

material for retaining the sheet A in form'.A

-Figx 3 represents a pad consisting of a sheet ot" tinted or crimped paper A,fand strips of plainv paper B applied to prevent the fluting from# dattening or expanding. Y Where breakage or leakage is to be greatly apprehended, or where otherwise the packing Iis liable to'exposnre or moisture, water-proof paperjmay, to great advantage, beemployed.

tlutedA paper; but What I claim as new, and desire to secure by Letters Patent, is

As a new article of manufacture, a packing composed of a sh eet of paper, fluted'or crimped to. give it body and e'lastieity,`and another sheet secured to the former' to retain it in place.


I do not claim, broadly, the invention of Witnesses:
