This is a letter sent by Samuel Yellin, master iron worker and Singing Tower artisan, to 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). Curtis Bok was his eldest son and a lawyer. The stationary on which the letter is typed is folded. In raised, black lettering in the header of the stationary: '5520 Arch Street Philadelphia.' The letter is typed in black ink. In the upper right corner in pencil is a check mark probably indicating a response was sent. Samuel Yellin signed the letter in black ink. The Mrs. Bok mentioned is Margaret Plummer Bok, Curtis Bok's then wife. The paper is discolored on the left side showing indications of close proximity to another, handwritten letter.
