Overview

Two-page typed letter from Dr. C.D. Spivak to Mr. Harold S. Bloomberg and dated Jan 22 1908. Letter states, JCRS does not have funds for "defraying the expenses of burying our dead." If family of deceased patients cannot pay the $32.60 expenses for burial, expenses are covered by a society of Jewish women in Denver and an orthodox cemetery. In these cases, patients are considered "charity,- in short, a pauper". Family wishing to remove the stigma of this title must pay the burial expenses. Paying in full also provides the family the ability to erect a monument or headstone for the deceased. Dr. Spivak states Leon Schwartzman's burial came to $48.00 and $15.40 was applied to this from it being found in his clothing upon death. Letter is not signed, but "Secretary" is typed at the bottom.
