An interesting collection of Nelson letters is to be auctioned. I don't recognise the contents at first glance. Maybe unpublished?

On looking at the Hanson Auctioneers online catalogue for the sale at the end of September, the five letters were offered as separate lots and as two of the lots do not show a final sales figure, I assume they remained unsold. Of the three sold, one made £6,000 (estimate 7/10 k) and the other two £3,500 each (estimates 4/6 k ).
