Further objects of the invention are to provide, in a manner as hereinafter set forth, a filing receptacle constituting a combined index, letter folder and envelope, which is simple in its construction and arrangement,

strong, durable, compact, thoroughly eflicient and convenient in its use, and comparatively inexpensive to manufacture.

WVith'the foregoing and other objects in view the invention consists of the novel construction, combination and arrangement of parts, as hereinafter more specifically described and illustrated in the accompanying drawings, wherein is shown an embodiment of the invention, but it is to be understood that changes, variations and modifications can be resorted to which come Within the scope of the claim hereunto appended.

In the drawings wherein like reference characters denote corresponding parts throughout the several views :-v

Figure 1 is a perspective view of a recepta-' cle, in accordance with this invention, in extended position.

Figure 2 is a perspective'view of the receptacle in closed position.

Figure 3 is a section on line 3 S Figure 2. .Figure 4 is a section on line 4-4 Figure 2. Figure 5 is a plan view 'ofthe blank from which the receptacle is formed.

Figure 6 is a front elevation of the receptacle, broken away.

Figure 7 is a rear elevation of the receptacle.

Referring to Figure 5 of the drawings a blank from which the receptacle is con-.

structed comprises a pair of'rectangular folds 1,'2 integral with each other at the inner sides thereof and foldable on the line 8. The

of'thefold 2'and the latterhas projecting from its outer end a tapered extension 4 adapted to receive suitable index indicia,

not shown; The width of the extension" 4 is materially less than that of the fold 2. That part of the fold 2, other than the extension 4 thereof is of the same length as the length of the fold 1. Joining with one side edge of the fold 2, is a fold 5 of less length than the length of the fold 2, but of the same width.-

arnr rice The fold 5 has its outer end spaced inwardly with respect to the outer end of fold 2 and the inner end of fold 5 is fiushwith the inner end of fold 2. Joining withthe inner end of fold i 5 is a fold 6 of slightly less width than that of fold 5, but of a length'rnaterially greater than the length of fold 5. One side of fold 6 is slightly spaced from the adjacent side of fold 1. Joining with the outer end of the fold 1, at one side of said end, is afold 7 of a width materially less than that of fold 1, but of a length slightly greater than the length of the latter. The width of fold 7 is substantially half the widthof fold 1'. 1

The outer end of the fold 5 has the major portion thereof inset as at 8 and the inner side of the fold 7 has themajor portion thereof inset as at 9. The folds 6 and 8 are folded together upon theline 10. Integral with the outer end of the fold 6 is a tapered flap 10 foldable relative to the fold 6 upon the line 11. Integral with the outer side of thefold l is a narrow, tapered fold 11 of a width corresponding to the length of the fold 1, but of a length materially less than any of the folds. The fold 11 is foldable relative to the fold 1 upon the line 12. Formed integral with the outer side of the fold 5 is a narrow, tapered fold 13 of a width corresponding to the longest portion of the fold 5, but of alength ma-. terially less than that of said fold 5. The fold 13 is foldable' relatively to the fold 8 upon'theline 14. Formed integral with the outer end of the fold 7 is a narrow tapered fold of a width corresponding to the outer end of the fold 7, but of a length materially less thanthe length ofthe fold 7. Thefold 15 is foldable relative to the-fold 7 upon the line 16. The folds 11,13 and 15 constitute fold 7. extends across the inner face of the securing flaps and are provided with an adhesive coating.
