Letter states that on Saturday afternoon July 4th Minz, grocery telephoned that an emergency case is lying on a wagon surrounded by a crowd of over three hundred persons and that they have already had this case at the Sanitorium twice, but he was not accepted on account of lack of room.

Letter states that yesterday, July 5th, at their conference at the Sanitorium, they decided that there should be room on Monday and that the patient should be admitted as an emergency case. Letter is unsigned but "Secretary" is typed at the bottom.
