To Load Air Balloons With Stars Serpents &c &c When You Fill
your shells, you must first put in the serpents, rains, &c., or
whatever they are composed of, then the blowing powder; but the shells
must not be quite filled. All those things must be put in at the
fuse-hole, but marrons being too large to go in at the fuse-hole, must
be put in before the inside shall be joined. When the shells are
loaded, glue and drive in the fuses very tight. The number and
quantities of each article for the different shells are as follows:
Powder for the mortar 2
1 oz. driven or rolled stars, or as many as will fill the shell.
BALLOONS OR SERPENTS.
Powder for the mortar 2-1/2
