Arsenious Green Paper.

The Scientific American 10, 3.9.1859

Messrs. Editors: You have frequently spoken of the bad effects resulting from the green colors of paper hangings containing arsenic. Those evils can be prevented by simply coating the paper with a white transparent varnish, which can be done by any practical housepainter or paperhanger. By so doing the poison is hermetically sealed, consequently the air, &c., cannot act upon it; neither will washing injure it.
