It would appear that vitreous and resinous electricity are not different types of electrical fluid, but merely positive and negative's of the same force.
I was thinking of the easiest and most efficient way to prove this and I came upon a grand idea of flying a kite in a thunder storm with a key attached to it hopefully prevent being electricocksucked. (Do Not try at home!!!) well when rain has wet the kite twine so that it can conduct the electric fire freely, you will find it streams out plentifully from the key at the approach of your knuckle, and with this key a phial, or Leiden jar, maybe charged: and from electric fire thus obtained spirits may be kindled, and all other electric experiments may be performed which are usually done by the help of a rubber glass globe or tube; and therefore the sameness of the electrical matter with that of lightening completely demonstrated.
