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."
