“The Leyden jar and discharger. Its discovery is attributed to the attempt of Musschenbrock and his pupil Cuneus to collect the supposed electric ‘fluid’ in a bottle half filled with water. The bottle was held in the hand and was povided with a nail to lead the ‘fluid’ down through the cork to the water from the electric machine. The invention of the Leyden jar is also claimed by Kleist, Bishop of Pomerania.” -Hawkins, 1917
