William of Orange's invasion - reaction by James II

Following the landing of William of Orange on November 5/15, 1688, James II issued a declaration expressing his anxiety and disapproval of these events. Besides this, a list of regiments in the Prince's army is printed as well. Please compare this list to the list of horse and dragoons and the list of foot compiled from modern sources.

Thanks for this! I'm doing a project on the Glorious Revolution and I found this primary source very helpful and fascinating.
