Fore-Edge of Yarmouth Isle of White
The Foredge is of outstanding intricacy a detailed painting of Yarmouth showing sail boats and the port in the background, and a small tri mast sailboat in the foreground under full sail and crew battling the strong off shore winds of the Isle of white.
Yarmouth is a town, port and civil parish in the west of the Isle of Wight, off the south coast of England. The town is named for its location at the mouth of the small Western Yar river. The town grew near the river crossing, originally a ferry, which was replaced with a road bridge in 1863. Yarmouth has been a settlement for over a thousand years, and is one of the earliest on the island. The first account of the settlement is in Æthelred the Unready's record of the Danegeld tax of 991, when it was called Eremue, meaning "muddy estuary". The Normans laid out the streets on a grid system, a plan which can still be seen today. It grew rapidly, being given its first charter as a town in 1135. The town became a parliamentary borough in the Middle Ages, and the Yarmouth constituency was represented by two members of Parliament until 1832 until the castle was built, raids by the French hurt the town; in 1544 it was reputed to have been burned down.
Junius was the pseudonym of a writer of a series of political letters to London's, Public Advertiser, from 1769 to 1772 as well as several other London newspapers, such as the London Evening Post. The Letters of Junius had a definite objective: to inform the public of their historical and constitutional rights and liberties as Englishmen; and to highlight where and how the government had infringed upon these rights. Because of the letters, charges were brought against several people, of whom two were convicted and sentenced. Junius himself was aware of the advantages of concealment, as he wrote in a letter to John Wilkes dated September 18, 1771. Two generations after the appearance of the letters, speculation as to the authorship of Junius was rife. Sir Philip Francis (1740 - 1880), an Irish-born British politician and pamphleteer, is now generally, but not universally, believed to be the author.
