Alice Dyer to Alexander Laihovetsky, letter 1, 1931

I think Alice was probably the wife of the Kowloon Docks manager.

Captain Alexander Laihovetsky lived in HK from about 1919-42, apart from a period in the 1920s when he took his family to Canada chicken-farming - probably the reason he came to be considered an "expert" on chickens. He even kept chickens on his ship.

There is Dyer Avenue at Hung Hom where the Dockyard once was. So there is a connection.
