Argued December 21-22, 1887

Decided January 23, 1888

124 U.S. 347

and a claim for "the tin vessel, incased by a steel cylinder, and ends soldered to the latter, in the manner substantially as described," was reissued seven years afterwards, with a similar specification and claim except in omitting from the claim the words "steel" and "soldered to the latter."
