Abstract

"(1) Shall we ever navigate the air with a dirigible craft? (2) If so will it be by the propulsion of an inclined plane against the air, or by baloon [sic], or by both, or by a combination of both. I would like to print you reply in the Post." [TAE Marg.: "Inclined plane, apparatus held in air By power and propulsion forward obtained by falling and rising due to the wind--as with birds--E"]
