NEW YORK (AP) - There’s more Alexander Hamilton excitement coming to New York City in January.

Sotheby’s says it will offer a trove of Hamilton documents that were handed down through his family.

The archive includes many personal documents, including the love letters of Hamilton and his wife, Eliza.

There’s also a condolence letter Eliza got from her father, Philip Schuyler, after Hamilton died in a duel with Aaron Burr.

One document marks Hamilton’s appointment as aide-de-camp to Gen. George Washington. It has a presale estimate of $150,000 to $250,000.

Another lot will feature a lock of Hamilton’s hair with a presentation letter from his wife. Its estimate is $15,000 to $25,000.

The auction is set for Jan. 18 in Manhattan.
