A previously unforeseen peril of meteorites

While searching for early articles on meteorites, I was looking though the contents page of a copy of Philosophical Transactions when I found these three articles listed together.

"Excellent," I thought as I scrolled down, hoping to find others. The first two lines of the next title seemed to offer more of the same, but...

It doesn't specifically say that the stones didn't fall from the sky, but for the sake of that poor man, I hope they didn't.

Philosophical Transactions, Vol 51, Part 1, 1759
