This article offers new evidence about Henry Booth, 2nd Lord Delamere and then 1st earl of Warrington. It focuses on (and reproduces) a manuscript in which an archetypal true whig, who was publicly hostile to James II in and after 1688, suggests how the whigs and James might be reconciled and how James might return to England. The article places the piece in the context of Warrington's other writings, his sense of betrayal and lost opportunity, the extent to which he agreed with ‘whig jacobites’ and Warrington's commonwealth principles. It finishes by linking this to the legacy left by Geoffrey Holmes and relating it to some recent research on the state and officeholding.
