Patented May 18, 1869

To whom it may concern:

Be it known that we, Francis Peters and George Clem, both of Cincinnati, Hamilton County, Ohio, have invented a new and useful Privy-Seat, of which the following is a full, clear, and exact description, reference being made to the accompanying drawings, making part of this specification.

This invention relates to a device which renders it impossible for the user to stand upon the privy-seat; and consists in the provision of rollers on top of the seat, which, although affording a secure and convenient seat, yet, in the event of an attempt to stand upon them, will revolve, and precipitate the user on to the floor.

Figure 1 is a perspective view of a privy-seat embodying our improvement

Figure 2 is a vertical section thereof, from front to rear.

A represents the box, having one or more pairs of standards, B, which afford journal bearing for a roller, C, over the front edge of the box, and where necessary, of side rollers C' and C' and the back roller C''.

These rollers, while circular in traverse section, may have the represented or any other longitudinal contour, but are preferably somwhat hollowed toward their mid-length, as shown.

We claim herein as new, and of our invention--

One or more rollers, constituting a privy-seat, substantially shown and for the purpose designated.

Our testimony of which invention, we hereunto place our hands.
