Johnson assigned his rights to Joseph H. Travis and Eugene H.
Mahoney, of the same place. His patent is "constructed of a base having legs, and dividied across the width of [the] chair into two parts or sections, hinged together at their upper portions, in combination with a seat-board or frame that is hinged to one section of the said base so as to turn there on; and is so connected to the other section that when turned on its hinges of the one section of base it will swing the other section on its hinges, and thus enable, with a proper relative arrangement of the several parts, a folding and unfolding thereof, as may be desired."
