Adolf Hitler's letter sells for 8,000 pounds
London, Mar 24: A letter written by Adolf Hitler, wishing for a 'truly cordial relationship' between Britain and Germany, has been sold for 8,000 pounds at an auction.

The one-page letter, dated Sep 30, 1931, was the response of the Nazi dictator to a 'kind invitation' from British journalist Sefton Delmer to write an article about the economic crisis facing Britain.

The US buyer, Kenneth Rendell, owner of a Second World War museum in Massachusetts was quoted by Times Online as saying, "It was the most incredible bargain."

He also added that he would have paid up to 50,000 pounds for the historic letter.

Delmer, who possessed the letter, was one of the famous journalists of his generation and the first British reporter to interview Hitler and travel with him on his plane during the 1932 election campaign.
