BROADSIDE PAVING THE WAY FOR WILLIAM'S INVASION AND THE GLORIOUS REVOLUTION, issued just days before he landed at Brixham in Devon on November 5, 1688. It was issued to Dutch foreign ministers residing in England, "to be used by them as they shall see occasion," and explains in some detail William's rationale for supplanting King James. The English nobility was largely persuaded and most Protestant officers quickly abandoned James on the news of William's arrival. William and Mary were crowned together on April 11, 1689.
