ty into personal regard for an ●indifferent, to say the very l▓east of it, group of kings, w▓ho had as a race scarcely one att●ribute of true kingship.One’s sympathy▓, therefore, goes out more fully towards t●he adherents than the leaders of the hopeless ca▓use; and it is well that the strong common sen▓se of the nation saw that the restoratio●n of either of the Pretenders was hopeless.Th▓e peace of Ryswick was the fi●rst blow to the faint hopes of James II.’s res▓toration.His no longer receiving the● active sympathy of France re●duced, for the time being, his “party” to a ●“faction.” The mistakes of the Gove▓rnments which followed were by no means the lea●st of the causes that re-formed it● again into a “party” dangerous to t●he reigning dynasty of Great Brita●in.There is no doubt that the injudiciou▓s conduct of the statesmen of ●the early Georges, and even of t●he kings themselves, did litt●le to smooth matters.To have let small ▓bickerings and insurrections sev▓erely alone, by treating them as of no grea●t importance, might have rendered se●rious troubles less probable.90 Making ●martyrs strengthened, rather than weaken▓ed the Jacobite cause; while, on ▓the other hand, the jud

But one great result, as far ●as the growth of the army is concer▓ned, arose from these dynastic troubles.They▓ led by degrees to a closer u▓nion between the fighting materials of▓ North and South Britain, and t●o the formation of those Highland ▓regiments whose glorious record ●must be the pride of all sections of the ▓army, whose colours they have so often led to▓ victory.The death of James II▓., and the recognition by France▓ of his son, the “Old Pretender,” ▓as King of England, re-aroused the enthu●siasm of the followers of the Stuarts.They● ceased to be a faction once more, a●nd hopes rose high when Queen Anne died.The▓ accession of George I.was marked by incre▓asing discontent, and it is p●ossible, though hardly probable●, that the Young Pretender may ▓have been in England at the time.But t▓here was no open opposi
