This is a telegram sent by William [likely a typo for Willem] Mengelberg, a Dutch conductor who led the New York Philharmonic Orchestra (1922-1928), 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 on smaller pieces of paper in blue ink and affixed to a larger piece. There are several noticeable folds in the page and a small tear near the bottom left corner.
