In this undated image released by Henry Aldridge And Son Autioneers, Saturday April 26, 2014, showing the envelope, part of a letter written by Esther Hart and her seven-year-old daughter Eva as they sailed aboard RMS Titanic in April 1912, shortly before the ship struck an iceberg and sank in the North Atlantic Ocean with 15,00 souls. Esther Hart survived, and so did the letter she wrote because her husband put the letter inside the pocket of his coat which he gave to his wife to keep warm, giving exquisite details about the voyage aboard the ill-fated Titanic. The handwritten letter is expected to sell for up to 100,000 pounds ($168,000) at Henry Aldridge & Son of Devizes, England, on Saturday.(AP PHOTO /Henry Aldridge And Son Autioneers)
