The winds carried him ocean ward, and for a time he hovered over, tie vicinity of the Golden Gate, making various successful trials of his steer ing gear. The currents threatened to take Mm out over the Pacific, and he de cided, to make a landing on the pa*, rade ground of the Presidio, military reservation, but made the mistake of letting out too much gas, and he landed in the bay about 200 feet from shore.
