This is a telegram sent by Newton D. Baker, then president of the Woodrow Wilson Foundation, 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 black ink. The bottom left corner is missing as well as a small piece directly to the right of that corner.
