In 1882, Eliza Jackson wrote to her daughter-in-law, Amelia Lydia Dare: In my simplicity, I thought that Tom was a Bank Manager, but it seems he is also a hotel keeper. At the time, her son, Thomas Jackson, was the Chief Manager at HSBC in Hong Kong, and his wife Amelia had recently been suffering from some kind of illness. Both Thomas and Amelia were renowned for their entertaining, first in Yokohama, and later in Hong Kong at Creggan, their home on The Peak. A few years earlier, the London Manager David McLean had written to Thomas Jackson:
I hear you have been entertaining all Hongkong with dancing parties almost weekly. Save your coin is my advice. You will find the dollars useful when you come Home.
