The first engraving on this sheet is attributed to J. Rogers, after a painting by Benjamin West, (1738-1820). It is of William III, King of England, (1650-1702), about to cross the River Boyne on a white horse, leading the way with his sword; the men of James II's army flee before him and a wounded man in the foreground is carried away by his men. In the foreground, James II is attacked by a mob on the Isle of Sheppy. Below this, the second engraving on the sheet features a man lying on the ground beside a horse, a young boy behind him is leading the horse by the reins.
