X., (Thief of thr Bureau of Equipment and liecrusHini/, Washington, D.'C. Sir : In obedience to your ordere of December 8tb, I beg leaye to sub mit, herewith, the statements to me of Libi t. Commander G. F. F. Wii.de, Executive Officer of this vessel, in reference to the PATENT ELASTIC FELT MATTRESSES and PILLOWS. Fhis statement la made in accordance with tlve instructions received at the time the said article« were issued to this ship for trial, with my approval of the "TFIE FELT MATTRESSES AND PILLOWS were placed in the berths of the ship on the 20th day of March lait, and hav?, therefore, undergone a trial of something: more than eight months. " The present condition of the Mattresses and Pillows shovs that they retain their orig* inal elasticity unimpaired. The surface of the Felt remains even and smooth, without having formed iuto "lumps" or "kuota" to the slightest extent, iu the tropical climate the Felt was found to be a remarkably cool and comfortable substance to lie was non-absorbent of moisture, either from the body or damp atmosphere, and remained sweet and pure, and free from the slightest objectionable odor under ull conditions of raosphere. same. upon. It at The Mattresses and Pillows were also found to be free from vermin of all kinds, at all times. In one room where there was a hair iMattress in uße, the Officer occupying it was troubled with bug vermin, despite all effort« to prevent the annoyance, but the Felt in every instance remained proof against the pest«. " As regards the flotation qualities of the "Felt," I would make the following report of the teat made by me. A sample or "model" Mattress, one foot long, ten inches wide, and five inches thick, weighing one and one-half pounds in the aggregate, was used. The ticking at one end was cut away to permit the water to make its way in between the sheets o! the Felt, if possible. A chain shackle, weighing twenty-five pounds, was made fast to the model, which was thon placed in the water. At the end of twenty-four consecutive hours, the upper side oi the model was still above the surface of the water; upon being taken from the water and examined, the model was found to weigh four and one-half pounds gross weight, the greater part of which weight being caused by the water which the licking had absort>ed. Ths water had penetrated the ( V*) of an inch. Felt" only about one-eighth " I would recommend the PATENT ELASTIC FELT MATTRESSES and PILLOWS f °f Officers of the Navy. My opinion is that the Felt is the most cleanly, com fortable and durable substance for tho purposes to which it is put, ever tried in the Navv, and it is a moat efficient Life-Preserving material as well. All the officers of the ship using these Mattresses concur with me in this opinion, and I strongly Recommend the of these Mattresses and Pillows by the Bureau.
