Balloon descent at Gonesse, France
The first trial hydrogen balloon which ascended from the Champ de Mars, and descended in the village of Gonesse, north east of Paris. Writhing with the slow expulsion of its malodorous impure hydrogen, it terrified the inhabitants, who attacked it with guns and pitchforks, and tied it to the tail of a horse which they drove off over the field.
