Question relates to a holographic will, executed in Calif. In making bequests of sum-certain amounts of cash, is it enough to write, e.g., $4,000, or must one also spell out the amount?

No need to spell out the amount just having the numbers is sufficient.
It should not matter is the intention and amount is clear ( and , of course, you comply with the requirements to have a valid will under present law). .
