This is a telegram sent by Clara (Clemens), singer and daughter of Mark Twain, and Ossip Gabrilowitsch, a Russian-American pianist, conductor, 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. In black ink 'C' may indicate a response was sent. The message is typed in blue ink on small strips of paper then affixed to the larger paper. The last name is incorrectly spelled as 'GRABILOWITSCH' on the message. The bottom edge is slightly torn and folded.
