This is a letter likely sent by Effingham B. Morris, President of Girard Trust Company and Director of the Pennsylvania Railroad, 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 this letter is written is folded. In raised, black lettering in the header of the stationary: 'GIRARD TRUST COMPANY PHILADELPHIA.' 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. A watermark with logo for 'Whiting's Woven Linen' is printed on the stationary.
