Wild», Executif» €>19cer of this vessel, In reference to the es ^ PATENT ELASTIC FELT MATTRESSES and PILLOWS. u. s. s. - Thla statement la made In accordance with the Instructions received at the time the »aid articles were issued to tlila «hip for trial, yvlth my approval of the same. "THE FELT MATTRESSES AND PILLOWS were placeJ in the bertlis of the ship on the 20th da, of March laet, and h»ve, therefore, undergone a trial of something more than eight months. " The present condition of the Mattresses and Pillows «hoirs that the, retain their orlg lual elasticity unimpaired. The surface of the Felt remains even and smooth, without having formed Into "lumps" or "knots" to the slightest extent. In toe tropical climate the Felt was found to be a remarkably cool and comfortable substance to lie upon. It ^Wac non-absorbent of moisture, cltber from the bod, or damp atmosphere, and remained sweet and pure, and free from the slightest objectionable odor under all conditions of at montiere. " The Mattresses and PiUows were also found to bo free from vermin of all kinds, at all times. In one room where there was a hair Mattress in use, 'he Officer occupying it was troubled with bug vermin, despite all efforts to prevent tbe annoyance, but the Felt in every instance remained JUNÉÉ against the pests. " As regards the flotation qualities of the "Felt," I would make the following report of tbe teat made by me. A sample or "modal" Mattress, one foot long, ten inches wide, end five luches thick, weighing one and one-half pounds iu the aggregate, wm need. Tbe ticking at ono end was cut away to permit the water to make its way In between the sheets ot the Felt, if possible. A chain shackle, weighing twenty-five pounds, wee made fast to the model, which was then placed in the water. At the end of twenty-four consecutive hours, the upper side ot 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 belug caused by the water which the ticking had absorbed. The water had ponetrated the "Felt" only aboot one-eighth (%) of an inch. " I would recommend tbs PATENT ELASTIC FELT MAITRESSE* i\VS mh for the use of Officers of the Navy. My opinion Is that the Ftft fortablc aud durable substance for the purposes to which it mt and it Is a most efficient Life-Preserving material as well. AS using these Mattresses coucur with me in this opinion, and I sti of these Mattresses and Pillows by toe Bureau.
