This is a letter sent by Moriz Rosenthal, Polish pianist and composer, to Mary Louise Curtis Bok upon hearing the news of Edward W. Bok's death. Mr. Bok was the former editor of Ladies' Home Journal and the founder of the Mountain Lake Sanctuary and Singing Tower (now Bok Tower Gardens). Mrs. Bok was his wife and the founder of the Curtis Institute of Music in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. The stationary on which the letter is written is folded. A logo and hotel information in blue, raised print is printed for the Cap Martin Hotel. The letter is written in French in black ink. In the upper left corner in black ink is a check mark probably indicating a response was sent.
