Two incredible relics of the doomed Titanic are going up for auction. Nathan Rousseau Smith, has the story:
A remarkable letter written the day before the Titanic disaster by a victim who stated ‘if all goes well we will arrive in New York on Wednesday’ has been uncovered 105 years later.
The poignant note by a wealthy first class passenger has been initially valued at a whopping £80,000 ($105,000) but is being tipped to break the record for a Titanic letter of £119,000 ($157,000).
Over three pages on White Star Line headed notepaper, tragic Alexander Oskar Holverson described to his mother the luxurious surroundings of the infamous ship.
He wrote on April 13, 1912 ‘this boat is giant in size and fitted up like a palacial hotel. The food and music is excellent’.
The letter is also the only one of its kind to reference the Titanic’s most famous and richest passenger, John Jacob Astor, who was on a par with Bill Gates in terms of his wealth.
