This letter written by Alexander Oskar Holverson, a first class passenger who perished when the Titanic sank, contains the poignant prediction that “if all goes well we’ll arrive in New York on Wednesday”. It was the last-known letter written onboard the Titanic and sold for a record-breaking £126,000 at auction.
