ANOTHER MAN-CARRYING GLIDER.

To the Editor of FLIGHT.
  SIR, - I enclose a press plate of a biplane which I have just built, as I thought perhaps you might like to put it in FLIGHT. The machine is 30 ft. long and 6 ft. wide. It has the usual elevators in front and a tail behind, which, however, is not shown in the photograph. Balancing-planes are fitted at each end, and the whole is mounted on wooden runners. At present no engine is fitted, as it is being used as a glider. I have recently ordered a Bleriot monoplane, which is being delivered in January.
  Yours faithfully, V. V. D. HEWITT.
