This is a letter sent by Frank Doubleday (F.N.D.), publisher, 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 typed is folded. In the upper left corner in black ink is a check mark and the initials 'MLB' probably indicating Mrs. Bok sent a response. The name 'Doubleday' in black ink at the bottom may have also been added by Mrs. Bok.
