A good friend has a friend with letters written to him years ago by Titanic/Britannic survivor Violet Jessop. In the 2 letters, she mentioned Titanic, and amazingly, revealed Britannic was in fact torpedoed.
A 'Titanic expert' asserted that the letters are worth very little, as Violet was not a well know titanic figure, and not worthy of publication. My friend now seems to think the letters are worthless, and odds are they will never be published.
Would 2 handwritten letters from Violet Jessop in which she discussed Titanic and Britannic truly be worthless?
I told my friend if his friend were to sell the letters at Aldridge, they'd fetch well over $10,000- But he doesn't believe me....
I just hope someday they are published...

Aldridge and Sons would be the best ones to ask about that. I don't think these letters would be worthless to the serious collector.
