They now turn to Dr. Spivak, whom they know to have it in his power to help them and request that Raphael Hoffenberg be given a tent in Denver and taken care of. Letter states hope that Dr. Spivak will not refuse this one and answer them at once. Letter is signed Mrs. Betty Katzman and Mrs. Mary Newman.
