In full: "Dear Mrs. Holding: Thank you so much for your kind and at the same time amusing letter. It interested me to learn about the person of whom you write because she always professes such devotion to the Orchestra, and now I know how little sincere she is. I hope you will continue to find pleasure in the concerts of our Orchestra, and I shall do my utmost to make them as fine as I possibly can. Yours sincerely, LEOPOLD STOKOWSKI".

He was known for his lush interpretations of the classics and it was under his baton that the orchestra played the music for Disney's Fantasia (1940). Lightly toned, creased and rippled. Signature is lightly smeared in places, but legible. Letter has been cut from a larger sheet at left and bottom edges; bottom edge is irregular.
