Hitler Controversy Over tlie
UiU'lit to Dispose of
After xveeks; of stormy discussion
throughout Knglund there begins to
morroxv at Sotheby's In London the snle
nf tho famous love letters of tho poet.
Hubert Hroxvnlng, nnd his xxife, Kllza
beth Barrett Browning, almost as re
nowned poet ns her husband.
The letters are to be auctioned despite
the outcries of many who thought their
mere publication Inexcusable. It will
undoubtedly be the most sensational
sale of Its kind this year. The Brown
Ing collection to be disposed of also In
cludes the poets' library, manuscripts,
paintings and relics.
For weeks past columns In the Lon
don press huvo been devoted to the dls
curslon of the sale and the storm con-
;tr! has been, us ll has so often been In
Hroxvnlng excitements of the past, the
praprlety of giving to the xx-orld the love

These letters, probably the most fa
mous series of letters In the world, cer
tainly tho most talked about of modern
letters, nro to be auctioned on the sec
ond day of the sale.
The really bitter feeling that was
aroused, when It xvas first planned to
publish them must he remembered by
every one. The literary xx-orld upon
both sides of. the Atlantic ranged Itself
Into active lighting lines, and tho re
criminations und Judgments that were
hurled back and forth were acid in the
Tho noble lovo story of tlie Brownings
xx-as weH known, and their contempora
ries xvho still survived felt outraged at
the thought of baring tn the xxorld's eyes
letter that wore held to be sacred and
of a tenderness essentially private. The
younger generation wus determined to
have them, and when It bvrame known
that Broxvnlng himself, before his death,
had given them to his son with th per
mission to do xxith thetn what tho son
thought host, the public outcry grad
ually ceased and tho letters were printed.
Immediately they took their place ns
classics, and there are many critics who
hold that whatex-cr may become of the
Browning poems and plays these letters
must alxx-ays occupy a supreme place In
Thcro arc 2S4 from Hubert BroxvnlnK
and 2S7 from tho then Kllzubcth Bar
rett, for no letters were exchunged after
the marriage, ns thn Broxvnings were
nex'er iiKain separated even for n dny.
The letters are In the enses In which
tho lovers kept them, hers In a marque
try box and his In a collapsible gold
tooled leather case.
The possible buyer Is n subject of
great conjecture. The British Museum
xvould like to possess them, but the Brit
ish Museum purse Is not a large one,
tiud there Is no society to assist It In
I emergencies such ns tho Amis du Louvro
!of Paris. In one xx'ay it xx-ould afford
relief should the museum acqulro the
letters. The discussion, futile now that
I the lettets am public property, would
Among the original mnnuscripts to
! be sold are those for Mrs. Browning's
"Aurora Leigh," "Sonnets from the
Portuguese," "Poems Before Congress"
and "Casa Quid! Wlndoxvs," and for
Hobert Browning's "Asolanto." "A Last
Word." notes for "The ltlng and tho
Hook" und the acting copy of "The Blot
on the Scutcheon."
It Is told that when the Brownings
came to Kngland In H53 the "Aurora
Leigh" manuscript was packed in a
box xxith Penlnl's velvet trousers. The
box xx'ent astray for a time and Mrs.
Hroxvnlng, so Lady Ultclile says, was
far more agitated about the loss of her
son's clothes than of the manuscript.
The library Is especially rich In pres
entation copies from the famous con
temporaries of the poet, and of course
boasts n wonderful array of autograph
letters, There nre many from Thomas
, Cnrlyle. including one early one in which
he advised Browning to drop poetry for
: prose. He is criticising "Sordello":
I "I'nUss I xery greatly mistake, Judg
