This is a letter from Peter and Cornelius Schellinger(?), residents of Den Helder, the Netherlands, 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 letter is hand written in black ink. The paper is torn in an uneven line at the top. Faint lines appear on the page to guide writing. In the upper left corner a check mark in black ink may indicate a response was sent. There is no other indication of the Schellinger's relationship to the Boks.
