Postby Andrew Clarkson » Sat Oct 21, 2017 7:44 am

A hand-written letter found on the body of a man killed in the sinking of the Titanic is expected to fetch up to £80,000 (C$133,000) at auction on Saturday.

The letter, written by first class passenger Alexander Oskar Holverson to his mother on embossed Titanic stationary, describes his impressions of the palatial ship, praising the food and music.

“If all goes well we will arrive in New York Wednesday A.M.,” Holverson wrote the day before the ship’s fateful encounter with an iceberg.

Holverson was a Minnesota-born salesman, who was travelling on the ship with his wife, Mary Alice, who survived the sinking.
