I have an abstract submitted for a symposium in London on 23 June 2007
I had submitted an abstract for a Williamite Universe event: "Anglo-Dutch Relations c.1650-1720", London, Saturday, 23 June 2007. I am still waiting to hear the result, but I will be ready, if it is accepted. My paper is about the reaction of the Dutch to English provocations in 1651 up to the start of the war, and about Dutch naval strengthening from 1651 to 1653, in response, including the attempt to strengthen the navy before and during the war.
