Mac Sweeny, 1844, Essay on Aerial Navigation, pp. 87–88.

An aerial voyage is not dangerous, when all matters are in perfect order. Cavallo wrote his history of Aerostation in 1785; up to that time 40 persons had ascended, two or three persons had been hurt, but without loss of life, and the accidents were to be attributed to the want of experience in the new art. He observes "it is justly questioned whether the first forty persons, who trusted themselves to sea in boats, escaped so safe." The numerous voyages that have been made since the time of Cavallo, have shown that aerostation is not a dangerous art, it is true that a few accidents have occurred, but no one thinks of giving up marine navigation, because an accident may happen to a ship occasionally. The descent is what requires the most care, see page 40. for the means of mooring.
