Identifier: B002.01.0100.0011.00002


Typed two-page letter from C.D Spivak in Denver, Colorado, to Miriam Kalisky, Assistant Superintendent of the Jewish Aid Society of Chicago, Illinois, in regards to Mr. B. Weinstein and J. Miller who had claimed to have been sent back to Chicago by Mr. Disraelly. Letter states that both had been patients of the J.C.R.S. Bennie Weinstein from Feb 16th to June 1st 1909 and Jacob Miller from July 31st, 1908 to June 9, 1909. Letter states that Mr. Miller had been discharged because he was in fair condition and claimed he could find work in Chicago, since he is a cabinet worker by trade. Spivak states that in regards to the contention that he should have been sent back to the city he came from, Buffalo did not send him, but rather he traveled to Denver and was received in the Sanitorium. Spivak states that in regards to Bernie Weinstein, that he had come from Elizabeth, Penn, was a blacksmith by trade, and had not been discharged by the Jewish Consumptives' Relief Society. He states that Weinstein had left with the intention of going back to Cleveland where his brother resides and from there wished to return to Russia, as he had been in the country only fourteen months. Letter states that due to the fact that he is sick authorities wanted to send him back to Russia, but he had refused. He had been advised to go directly from Denver to Russian but refused to go until he had first seen his brother. Letter is unsigned but "Secretary" is typed at the bottom.
