The initial letter sent from Princess Diana to a firiend of an aids victim, Vincent Hickey.<br />
<br />
Touching letters sent by Princess Diana to an aids victim who she paid £580 to so he could visit Lourdes have come to light.<br />
<br />
The exchange of correspondence between Diana and a friend of Vincent Hickey show the warmth and generosity the so-called 'People's Princess' showed to people less fortunate than her.<br />
<br />
In July 1996, just a year before her death in a car crash in Paris, Margaret Bendon wrote to Diana seeking help on behalf of Mr Hickey, who had aids and bowel cancer.<br />
<br />
Her personal assistant wrote back saying the Princess was considering the request before a second letter six days later was sent with an enclosed  cheque.
