Titanic letter going up for auction

Since it was never mailed, I’m not sure it qualifies as postal history, but a letter going to auction next month in the United Kingdom is a piece of history nevertheless.

According to a report from the BBC, a letter written on board the Titanic on the day that it sank will be sold next month. The letter was never mailed, but one of the survivors carried it with her when she left the sinking ship.

There’s something about seeing a letter or a cover—even if it was just written around the time when something big happened—that sends a little bit of a shiver up my back. How about you?
