Excerpt from The Comprehensive History of England, Vol. 7: Civil and Military, Religious, Intellectual and Social, From the Earliest Period to the Close of the Russian War; With Numerous Annotations From the Writings of Recent Distinguished Historians

With these Operations the campaign ended: the French retired within their lines, and Marl borough, after distributing his troops in winter quarters, began his journey homeward. His exploits were set off by the failures of other olli cers in other quarters. The plan for the reduc tion of Cadiz had been formed by the late King William, and since promoted by Marlborough and Godolphin. The expedition, after being long delayed, was at last got to sea; and on the 12th of August, Sir George Rooke and the Duke of Ormond, with a ?eet of fifty sail and a land force of men, came to anchor in Cadiz Bay. The Spanish governor was summoned to surrender to the allies of the rightful sovereign of Spain; but he refused, and then Rooke and Ormond, like all sea and land o?icers in a similar situation, quarrelled as to what was to be done next. Troops were subsequently landed at Port St. Mary's, at Vi go, and on other points; but they were badly commanded, and acted like an undis ciplined rabble. In the harbour of Vigo a rich convoy of plate-ships had taken refuge. After a stout resistance the Spaniards removed a part of this treasure and then set fire to the ships. The English succeeded in bringing o?' ten men-of-war, several galleons, and of pieces of eight; but more ships and far more money were burned or left behind at the bottom of the sea.
