For those wishing to know: Thomas Jackson was an Englishman who worked a 
"Town Missionary" to Holyhead in North Wales at a time when major 
developments were taking place.  Often asked for information about the 
town, which was trying to position itself as a tourist attraction, he 
decided to write the first guide book.  Much of what he described is still 
there and even today Holyhead does trade on those developments when it 
comes to tourism.

All the best,
England: clouding over with heavy rain expected
