Thanks for that, Phil. I once came across a lock of Nelson's hair in a letter at the Caird Library. i was sorely tempted to nick a strand or two but honour won!

There are some Nelson letters currently on sale at a Sotheby's online auction. No locks of his hair among them though.

I will post details of this separately.
