We love daydreaming about what life would have been like on the Titanic.
Spending a bit of quality time with Leonardo Dicaprio on a cruise ship would have been pretty bloody fantastic if you ask us.
Besides the icburgy death thing, mind you.
Ok, we know Leo wasn’t actually on the Titanic, but a girl can dream.
According to News.com, a rare letter that offers unique insight into life on the doomed ship has gone up for auction at auction house Henry Aldridge & Son.
The letter was sent by passenger Kate Buss, a second-class passenger and survivor, who sent the letter from the ship in 1912 after leaving Southhampton.
Buss’s family has been in possession of the letter since they received it from her, reports Fox News.
The letter is addressed to Buss’s brother Percy.
“I’ve been quite alright — but now feel dead tired and more fit for bed than anything,” She wrote, according to News.com.
“Have to go to dinner-tea in half an hour.”
The Titanic, which sank just five days after departing on its maiden voyage, carried approximately 2,225 passengers, 1,503 of which died when the cruise ship hit an iceberg in the Atlantic ocean.
Buss commented about the “magnificence” of the first class apartments and said they had not yet reached France, but that she thought she must try to write some postcards off the vessel.
“Must clear and have a wash now,” she finished.
“Will pop this in the [mail] in case I’m seasick tomorrow. PW brought a box of chocolates — shouldn’t wonder if I’m like Jim Buss and get it the other way. Give my love to all enquirers — must go. Much love, Kate”
Buss was saved by a lifeboat when the ship met its icy end reposts Fox, and died in 1972 at age 96.
The letter is estimated to sell at between $36,000 and $45,000 AUD.
