Letter from Eli Cohen to Dr. C.D. Spivak, 1908 July 17

Identifier: B002.01.0100.0013.00021


Typed letter on Hampden Shoe Company letterhead from Eli Cohen in Springfield, Massachusetts, to Dr. C.D. Spivak in Denver, Colorado, stating that he is sorry that he caused him the inconvenience as stated in Dr. Spivak's letter, although he feels as though he is not to blame, as he did not think that Mr. Goldstein was in that condition. He states that he thought Mr. Goldstein was able to get around and did not have an idea that he was so weak. Letter states that Mr. Goldstein had left Springfield several months before that and had stayed awhile in St. Paul, Minn. Cohen states that had he known that Mr. Goldfield was in such a condition, that he would have asked Dr. Spivak's advice before recommending Mr. Goldfield to him. He states that he is not in the habit of giving people recommendations, but in this case, Mr. Goldfield is a personal friend of his, so he thought it would do him some good sending him to Dr. Spivak, but did not think it would cause so much worry. Letter requests that Dr. Spivak write to him in regards to the condition and personal opinion of Mr. Goldstein and states that he will consider it a special favor. Letter also requests that Dr. Spivak let him know if Mr. Goldstein should need a little financial help and thanks him for his assistance. In turn, Cohen states that he will try to do his best to help Dr. Spivak in his good cause when necessary and requests that he let him know if there is anything he would want him to do in this city. Letter is signed Eli Cohen.
