CANVAS WATERPROOFING-I intend making a 300 mile over land trip next summer, in a covered wagon, and would like to know if you or any of your readers can give a method of waterproofing the ordinary canvas wagon sheet?
We hear of many methods of waterproofing canvas, the most common being to immerse in a solution of alum and sugar of lead. It is not a satisfactory method, however, and I know of nothing better than an application of linseed oil and after it has dried a coat of paint.
