Letter from C.D. Spivak to Dr. J.B. Fish, 1908 June 23

Identifier: B002.01.0100.0013.00030


Typed letter from C.D. Spivak in Denver, Colorado, to Dr. J.B. Fish in Edgewater, Colorado, requesting that he please admit Mr. Max Goldstein as an emergency case, and discharge him as soon as the emergency symptoms are over. He states that filling out an emergency application is unnecessary, as they already have one in office. Spivak states that he wishes to tell Dr. Fish how Mr. Goldstein came to Denver, for future reference and that at the present writing he is in an invalid chair at the depot. Letter states that Mr. Goldstein came from New Haven, from whence he was sent by his friends and lodge to which he belongs to his brother-in-law Mr. Copolitz at Hinckly, Minnesota, where he remained for two monthes. His brother in law claimed that he did everything possible for him, but could not stand it any longer and at the advice of his friends in New Haven, in addition to the lodge to which the patient belongs, brought him to Denver. Letter states that the brother-in-law claims that Mr. Goldstein came to Denver with only $5.00 in his pocket which will last him for his return trip and that if they do not take in Mr. Goldstein, that the patient will have to stay in Denver to make money in order to pay his fare back. Spivak states that he has not seen the patient himself and does not know what condition he is in, but that his brother-in-law claims that he is absolutely bed-ridden. Letter is unsigned but "Secretary" is typed at the bottom.
