The missive, valued at ?�4,000 ($6,659), indicates Nelson's desire to take command of a ship again, and was written with his left hand while he recuperated in Bath, UK.

In 2013, a letter from Nelson dating to 1804 made ?�54,500 ($82,885) at Hansons Auctioneers in the UK - an increase of 354.1% on a ?�12,000 ($19,977) estimate.
