Letter from Mrs. Mary Newman to Dr. C.D. Spivak , 1909 January 12

Identifier: B002.01.0100.0012.00014


Handwritten four-page letter in ink from Mrs. Mary Newman, Secretary, from Hartford, Connecticut, to Dr. C.D. Spivak, in Denver, Colorado, stating that she is pleased to hear that Mr. Bloomgarden triumphed over his work and that his trip was a success. She requests that Dr. Spivak let her know whether Mr. J. Marinoff has returned because she is greatly interested in the work of the Sanitorium, as well as in the workers. She states that her greatest wish, in conjunction with the Ladies Society and every society in Hartford, is that Raphael Hoffenberg be kept in the Sanitorium until Spring. She states that they send $25 monthly towards their [friend] and Mr. Hoffenberg being only patient there, she begs of him in the name of every true hearted Hebrew of Hartford not to turn Mr. Hoffenberg out just yet. She states that she is not a relative to the Rabbi or Raphael Hoffenburg, but a relative of the Sanitorium and that if Mr. Hoffenburg is denied of the Sanitorium, that there will be an uproar in Connecticut, resulting in the suffering of the Sanitorium. She states that she hopes for a speedy reply and that Dr. Spivak will do his utmost towards their Rabbi's son. Letter is signed Mrs. Mary Newman.
