Comfort kits are not all that complicated to make and instructions for them with measured line drawings were published in magazines during WWI, so it's a little unusual to see a manufactured pattern for one. Why the Newark (N.J.) chapter of the Red Cross was favored is a mystery.This pattern appears never to have been used. The insert of suggested items for filling the comfort kit was still enclosed.

I hope you can answer a comment on an old post. I would very much like to make one of these May-Manton Comfort Kits. How might I get get a scan of it?
Hello. I've added some additional scans that you can download and use to make up a full-sized pattern. Good luck.
