This is a letter likely sent by Johan Huizinga, Dutch historian, 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. The letter is hand written in black ink. In the upper left corner in black ink is a check mark probably indicating a response was sent. Below the signature, 'D. J. Huisinga' is written in black ink, probably by Mary Louise Bok..
