Dear Mrs. Brandeis,

With deep regret I learn of your sad bereavement and my sympathies are two-fold Louisville too was my home and birthplace. And as a boy I attended the same school with your dear departed husband. You must find comfort if at all in the wonderful acheivements honor and glory which surrounded Mr. Brandeis during many years of your married life. Peace be to his dear departed soul. And I hope you will bear up bravely in your most sad affliction. God took a noble man. And am sure in his goodness will provide comforting thought and health to the bereaved ones left behind.

Again deepest sympathy.
Sincerely yours,
Edw'd Rothchild
