Thinking About Flying A Kite . . .

Benjamin Franklin, Œuvres de M. Franklin, Docteur des loix ..., 1773, Portrait of Benjamin FranklinIn this plate from Benjamin Franklin's, Œuvres de M. Franklin, Docteur des loix . . . , 1773, "Portrait of Benjamin Franklin," the great man looks contemplative as a storm rages outside.

Perhaps he is thinking of flying a kite? 

Tradition places his famous kite experiment on this day in 1752.
