A letter written by literary great Charlotte Bronte to her lifelong friend Ellen Nussey has come up for sale-and is expected to fetch £5000–6000. The letter is one of over 500 which Nussey (here more affectionately addressed as 'Nell') received from Bronte over the years which were then used by novelist Elizabeth Gaskell to write her 1857 biography 'The Life of Charlotte Bronte.' The letter is due to auction on the 25th of September at Dreweatts and Bloomsbury.
