Excerpt from The Naval History of Great Britain, Vol. 2 of 6: From the Declaration of War by France in 1793 to the Accession of George IV

AS soon as the royalists in La Vendee were subdued, and Spain was on the eve of becoming an ally in the war, France bt her serious thoughts upon the invasion Of England; in which attempt she was to be assisted by the ¿eets of Holland and Spain. A close intimacy subsisted between Vice-admiral Truguet, the French minister Of marine, and General Hoche, who was to com mand the army destined to be employed in the expedition; and, as is not invariably the case in combined Operations, both the admiral and the general entered alike heartily into the cause, and concm'rcd in all the principal details of the gigantic plan which their united labours had prepared.

Before, however, the plan was finally settled, a secret com mittee was summoned to meet at the house of the Director Car not. Iiere it was discovered, that the state of the treasury would not admit Of the plan's being adopted to its full extent. It was therefore resolved to confine the expedition, for the present, to a descent upon Ireland a country whose disaffected inhabitants would, it was known, greet the invaders with joy, and yet whose capture by France would be in¿icting a blow upon England, of which She might never recover.
