This early work on tomato cultivation is both expensive and hard to find in its first edition. It contains information on potting, pollination, ventilation and much more. This is a fascinating work and is thoroughly recommended for the amateur fruit grower. Many of the earliest books, particularly those dating back to the 1900s and before, are now extremely scarce. We are republishing these classic works in affordable, high quality, modern editions, using the original text and artwork.

The content of this dissertation has not been altered in any way. We have altered the formatting in order to facilitate the ease of printing and reading of the dissertation. All rights not granted by the above license are retained by the author. Abstract: In Hong Kong Cemetery, there are many stories of the prominent figures which are said to be significant to the history of colonial Hong Kong. However, there are also some quiet stories left yet to be told. Being a Christian, I have put my focus on those people who died for the Christian belief. Not far away from the entrance, I am deeply impressed and sympathetic to a story inscribed on a grave: Mrs. Henrietta Hall Shuck, the first American female missionary to China, died young in 1844 when she was only 27. What was the driving force pulling this young woman from the comfortable home in America and bringing her to Hong Kong, and finally buried here? Is there any reference left behind by her to let me know much about her life? Her story has been in my mind for years if I can find much information on her life. Every time when I take bus running along Caine Road and Bonham Road to the University of Hong Kong, I see a splendid architecture sitting on a platform at the junction of Bonham Road and Seymour Road, like a lighthouse guarding the area. Afterwards, I know that it is called Church of Christ in China (CCC) Hop Yat Church. Once when I walked along and came closer to the church building, I found a stone plaque embedded on the fa?ade of the church, on which there were four Chinese words: "To Tsai Hui Tong" (道濟會堂), which is "To Tsai Church" in English. The first question came to my mind: why the plaque of another church was embedded on the fa?ade of this church? Is there any story behind? What is the relationship between this "To Tsai Church" and the existing CCC Hop Yat Church? These questions finally converge on many of the "firsts" Henrietta was not only the first foreign female missionary to Hong Kong, but also sharing the other three "firsts" the first foreign female resided in Hong Kong, the first person started female education in Hong Kong, and finally, the first foreign missionary died in Hong Kong. For the To Tsai Church, it was also the first independent Chinese church in Hong Kong. These "firsts" imply that both Henrietta and To Tsai Church were in significant positions in the early Christianity development in Hong Kong. Henrietta joined the first foreign missionary to Hong Kong but died in Hong Kong like a seed; To Tsai Church developed from the foreign missionary works and rooted itself in the local Chinese community and finally came to harvest. All these pioneer stories lead to this study: to work out a heritage trail on the footprints of Henrietta and To Tsai Church so as to illustrate how the early Christianity developed in Hong Kong. The dissertation is divided into three main parts. The first part, covered by Chapter 2, describes the definition of heritage trail, and introduces the purposes of the heritage trails by making reference to those in Hong Kong. Then, referring to our case of a heritage trail in Christianity, discussion is focused on the nature of the religious heritage trail with examples. The second part, covered by Chapters 3, 4 and 5, gives a detailed description on the history of how the Christian missionary reached China and then Hong Kong from the time of Jesus until the
