Dan,

Imagine this Mozart fantasy:

"I have all these letters I've written to my family. I suppose I could
donate them to a library which will safeguard them for future generations
of researchers or I could sell them to the highest bidder and scatter them
across the 4 corners of the world."

Aggh!

J.S. Bach did enough damage to the musicological world by hoping his sons
would come to terms by giving the parts to one son and the scores to the
other. I beg you to reconsider donation to the Grainger library as an option.

Unless, of course, you need the money, which is none of my business.
