July 14 finished History of England from the ascension of James II vol III by Thomas Macaulay. This volume picks up the thread of the tale where vol. II left off, at the Glorious Revolution. William is left with four or five warring factions in his parliament, a nation that is rather shocked with itself, even though the transfer was completed without bloodshed, and two “auxiliary” nations, which are ready to jump into the quarrel with both feet, whatever the pretense, not to mention a deposed king who would like to regain his alienated subjects. This volume deals primarily with William’s masterly handling of this delicate situation. The scene is temporarily diverted from England to deal with Ireland, where James lands with French troops to reclaim his exasperated people, and Scotland, where the various clans begin to war against one another, with William and James as the excuse. William is left in rather tenuous control of the three kingdoms, and James flees back to France, helping the opposing schools of opinion to band together by his threat of bringing a French army into England.
