In front of the Letts mausoleum (designed in Egyptian Revival style) in the Hollywood Forever Cemetery, six members of the Los Angeles Commandery No. 9, Knights Templar, raise their swords in an arch above the flower-covered casket of Arthur Letts. Seated mourners observe.
Pallbearers carry the flower-covered coffin of Arthur Letts to a hearse at his estate, Holmby House. The wooden sides of the hearse have bas-relief carving in the form of trompe l'oeil curtains framed by classicizing columns. The Tudor style mansion is visible behind the hearse.
