A scathing autographed letter written by Oscar Wilde's lover and son of Marquess of Queensbury Lord Alfred Douglas after noticing a 'poisonous article' in the Daily News is at Bonhams next month. The letter, written to the Daily News editor, attacks Robbie Ross and Arthur Ransome the latter of whom had published a biography of Wilde in 1912, helped by Ross who was Wildes executor.

Oh dear. It is was up to Douglas we wouldn't have ever seen De Profundis which is arguably Wilde's best work.
