Lost Titanic letter expected to fetch big money at auction

Postby Andrew Clarkson » Sat Apr 22, 2017 7:09 am

A “Wish You Were Here” letter written aboard the Titanic could fetch thousands of dollars at auction this weekend.

Four days before the ship sank, Swiss banker Alfons Simonius-Blumer penned the missive to his wife and daughter — in which he expressed regret they were not aboard the ship.

Simonius-Blumer, 56, gushed about how the ocean liner was “as good as the best hotel” and immune to the effects of blustery winds on her maiden voyage, the Daily Mail reported.

“Although the wind is blowing strongly, the ship is not heeling over one bit, and I certainly think that not even you would get seasick because everywhere the air is excellent,” he wrote in the four-page letter, which is up for auction.

“Here in the smoking room you can feel the propellers working, while in my cabin it is as quiet as in my room at home,” he wrote.
