An online auction at Sotheby's from 8th -15th July includes a number of Nelson letters.

The sale is called ' The Collection of a Connoisseur. History in Manuscript ' and comprises some 136 lots of letters and documents from the likes of Elizabeth I, Mary Queen of Scots, Napoleon Bonaparte and Lawrence of Arabia. There are 8 lots relating to Nelson including the document granting Nelson the Dukedom of Bronte at a guide price of 40 - 60K and a 4 page letter to Emma (Lot 95) written on 3 Oct. 1801, 8 - 12K.

Certainly a fascinating collection.
