One set of Drowne's lecture notes appears to be based on the lectures of Adam Kuhn of the College of Philadelphia. The mathematics and natural philosophy lectures of Alva Woods include the topics of optics, hydraulics, hydrostatics, aerostatics, pneumatics, electricity, astronomy, physics and mechanics, and the philosophy of language.
