The above tables of expenditure speak for themselves, and in doing so they afford the moral justification of the revolution of 1688. They show that the greater part of the additional revenue which James enjoyed was spent on the Army. In view of the statements which are widely made as to James's solicitude for the Navy and in view of James's own language on the subject when addressing his Parliament, we should have expected that whatever excess of revenue he received over and above that enjoyed by Charles II he would have spent on the Navy. The above tables do not bear out this idea at all.

It would be difficult to average Charles's naval expenditure, but roughly for the whole reign I should put it down at 400,000l. per an. James's expenditure on this head averages a little more, but not much.

On the other hand, James's expenditure on his Army shows an enormous increase. Charles's normal establishment for the Forces (Guards and Garrisons) was about 200,000l. per an.; James's establishment averages over 530,000l. per an. even excluding the last half year (1688, Mich., to 1699, Easter). The almost stereotyped composition of the Land Forces under Charles (it will be understood, of course, that I am speaking only of the English establishment) was three Troops of Guards, one Regiment of Horse Guards, one Troop of Dragoons and four Regiments of Foot Guards—in all not quite 4,500 men, not including officers. The garrisons numbered normally in all about 1,500 men. The total force, therefore, for both Guards and Garrisons was 6,000 men plus officers. This standing Army Charles never increased. The expeditionary Forces new raised for the intended war with the French King were raised by direct Parliamentary sanction and were disbanded in accordance with Parliamentary desires. The only apparent increase in the standing Army under Charles took place in the last year of his life, and this was not a real increase, but nominal only. It consisted simply in taking on to the English establishment the returning Garrison of Tangier when Tangier was abandoned (see the Introduction to the preceding Vol. VII of this Calendar, pp. lxvii-lxviii). These Tangier Regiments had been previously on the Irish establishment.

It is therefore an absolute fact that Charles never in his reign increased the standing Army.

Under James, however, an enormous increase took place. The full details of the increase will be found set out supra, pp. lxv seq. The increase consisted ultimately of a Fourth Troop of Guards, eight Regiments of Horse, twelve Regiments of Foot, three Regiments of Dragoons and fourteen Independent Companies of Grenadiers. At a very reasonable estimate James more than trebled Charles's standing Army. The pretext for the increase was of course furnished by Monmouth's rebellion, but the speciousness of that pretext need hardly be pointed out, for the greater part of the increase took place after the rebellion was over. In James's hands this disproportionate Land Force was a menace not to France but to the liberties of England, and what the Revolution of 1688 accomplished was simply the inversion of these terms. The increased Army which James had raised was not disbanded in 1689. By the harmonious action of William III and the Parliament the increased Army was maintained and was simply made a menace to France and thereby a protection to the liberties of England. A careful study of the details of James's Army increase will show how efficiently though unintentionally he had prepared the ground or the machinery for the greater Army of William's campaigns and how enormously he thereby facilitated the establishment of William's Government by the elimination of such Parliamentary friction as would certainly have arisen over a new or de novo increase of the standing Forces.

1 There is a double series of accounts for Wine Licences, corresponding apparently to the system of General and Cash Accounts in the case of the Customs and Excise. The account here printed is probably the Cash Account. The parallel [? General] Account is very imperfect and impossible to give for the whole reign of James II.
