About Clara Ho Tung

Clara Ho Tung, a Hong Kong lady p 6: by Irene Cheng (Clara's daughter)

  1. "Mamma (Lady Clara) and her parents moved to Shanghai, where the children [her younger brother and sister] died, and later to Kiu Kiang, an upstream port on the Yangtze River. Mamma often talked about the time when, as a little child, she was taken by her grandmother in a sedan chair to the top of Hong Kong's Victoria Peak.

Mamma was always grateful for his devotion to her father and many years later they arranged for her [Clara's] second daughter to marry Mr. Au-Yang's eldest son.
