Other Editions In July the Dutch States General voted the 40, florins asked of them, and in August the planners met in Baden, but the cracks were already showing. Then the blow fell. In July Godolphin and Southwel1 in London announced that English funds were being withheld and in the same month the Irish privy council withdrew their support for any immediate move.
The season, they said, was too advanced, there was drought and famine in the country and the families over 3, individuals could not be received until the fol1owing spring. Finally the Swiss also withdrew.
The war had closed the Rhine, the water route to Hol1and, and Galway was again summoned to Flanders by the king, spending a hectic four days in London en route. Facing the ruin of the project he dispatched an aide-de-camp, Josue du Fay, from his camp near Louvain to take the bad news to de Mirmand, whose orders were still to get the refugees through to Hol1and and the coast. The money was never sent.
In September William abandoned the project, to await better times, and the Swiss, with English, Dutch and German subsidies, managed to settle several thousand of the suffering Huguenots in the Bavarian towns of Schwabch and Erlangen, then part of Brandenburg-Baireuth.
Galway and his confidants worked on and it was not until after the Peace of Ryswick in that the project could be taken up again.

About This Item
None of this is inaccurate, and the Huguenots are wholly deserving of our respect and admiration. Still, the story told here would have benefited from greater nuance and a more balanced assessment of the complexities of the Huguenot situation.
What, for example, were the internal dynamics of the community? How did ordinary members of the local congregations cope with the stressful changes? In the end, this is a comprehensive and accessible, if largely conventional, account of the place and importance of the Huguenots in the European and ultimately broader Atlantic past.
