Summary

Synopsis of key ideas and experiments for two lectures on electricity. Benjamin Franklin wrote the original lectures ca. 1747 and Kinnersley gave the lectures on tour in the American colonies and the West Indies between 1749 and 1753. The references to lightning rods in the second lecture indicate that this version dates from 1751 or later. This manuscript is similar but not identical to advertisements for the lectures in the Pennsylvania Gazette.
