This is a letter sent by Eleanor Roosevelt, wife of then NY Governor and later US President Franklin D. Roosevelt, to 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). Curtis Bok was his eldest son and lawyer. The stationary on which the letter is typed is folded. The letter is typed in black ink. In the upper right corner in black ink is a check mark probably indicating a response was sent. In black ink on a blank portion of the stationary is a note that may have been written by Curtis Bok concerning Mrs. Vanderlip who is also mentioned in Mrs. Roosevelt's letter.
