Posted from Queenstown, Cork on 11th April as the Titanic set off across the Atlantic.<br />

A fateful letter from a Titanic steward telling his wife she 'needn't worry' about him has emerged for sale for £18,000.<br />
<br />
Tragic Richard Geddes tried to reassure wife Sally by informing her the doomed liner was 'better and steadier' than any ship he had known.<br />
<br />
He also hoped the crew would be 'luckier' on Titanic's next trip following an ominous near-miss with another ship when it left Southampton for its ill-fated maiden voyage.
