"I was astonished to find a laboratory and museum so well-supplied. I saw a Plate Machine three-feet five-inches in diameter, a Leyden battery of gallon jars, a Bunsen's of seventy cups. I saw some of the most recent inventions, a Ruhmkorf's coil, Faraday's magneto electric machine, Duboscq's telescope, and the most modern arrangement for producing electric light."
- Report of Mr. Anderson, Philadelphia Argus, 1860
