AFFAIR WITH DIANA STILL PAYING OFF

James Hewitt the former lover of Princess Diana, still is cashing in on the affair. His latest sale is a new memoir compiled after retrieving dozens of stolen love letters.

"Cruel Hewitt," "Cad in a Cravat" and "Lowest of Low," rival newspapers declared Sunday in near-unanimous condemnation of Hewitt's deal with the Mail on Sunday to serialize his memoir for the equivalent of $800,000.

Publication may start next week. The Mail on Sunday avoided the subject, but rival publications said the book includes notes from the late princess' two sons written to Hewitt when the boys were ages 8 and 5.

Hewitt will also draw on 63 letters from Diana, mostly written between 1990 and 1991 when Hewitt, a army officer at the time, was serving in the gulf war.

In February, he successfully sued to recover the letters stolen by another girlfriend.

Diana was killed in a Paris car crash in August 1997. She was 36.
