Identifier: B002.01.0100.0012.00002


Handwritten three-page letter in ink on The Jewish Ladies Consumptives' Relief Society letterhead from Mrs. Mary Newman, Secretary, to Dr. C.D. Spivak in Denver, Colorado, stating that Raphael Hoffenberg had given them many praises towards the Sanitorium, which she states is unfortunate due to the fact that many members are off on vacation. She states that she will be going back to Cosey Beach for vacation tomorrow and therefore it is impossible for do anything for the Sanitorium in order to show her gratitude. She states that as soon as they can manage, they will manage a mass meeting in one of their prominent halls and do everything in their power to make it a success. She hopes that the Young Ladies branch under the name of the Denver Club will be formed at that time too, as they are too busy in the summer to form a society. She states that in the name of the J.L.C.R.S. she wishes to thank him very much and that she cannot think of a big enough word to express her gratitude to for being so attentive to the patients. She states that Miss Sadie Malken of the Springfield Society was at her house Sunday and inquired information concerning a [tent] in Denver which they wished to start up and that she advised her to write to Dr. Spivak for all particulars concerning the same. She also states that Miss Malken had invited her to attend their next meeting and that she intends on being present. Letter is signed Mrs. Mary Newman, Secretary.
