A successful stockbroker in both England and Canada (1871-1912), Partner lost his life when the Titanic sank. Collection of four multi-page ALSs, all signed “Austin,” three 4.5 x 7, and one 9 x 10.25, on various letterhead, dating from 1909–1910, all written to his father. One letter, dated January 8, 1909, reads, in part: “You will have judged by your weather reports that we had a rough time crossing—in fact it was just about the same as last year but I’m none the worse—a few days liberal table in New York have made me feel 17 again & fit for any amount of work.” A later letter, dated May 21, 1910, details his travels to Mexico. In part: “I was most fortunate in having a companion to Mexico. This was a friend of mine on the London Stock Exchange whom I induced to go. Our journey from New York about 3400 miles was of course long & tedious…On our way down we stopped at Monterey…where there were such disastrous floods last year upwards of 4000 homes being swept away with 1000 lives lost.” In overall fine condition, with some light toning to larger letter. Ex. Brian Green Collection. RR Auction COA.
