Identifier: B002.01.0100.0021.00041


Typed letter from C.D. Spivak in Denver, Colorado, to Mrs. M. Rappaport [Minnie Rappaport] in New York City, New York. Spivak states that he has just received her registered letter and has also carefully read the letter of her husband [Samuel Rappaport]. Spivak states that her husband is perfectly right and that he does not understand what she wants of him. Letter states that her husband is sick and unable to work, his only salvation is to be here in Denver. Letter states that Rappaport cannot support her and her children. Spivak states that there are thousands of sick people who leave their wives and children adrift, and they have to make a living for themselves. Letter asks what the poor fellow can do when he is in the Sanitorium? Spivak states that if she knew that he is not in the Sanitorium, that he is doing some work, earning some money and not sharing his earnings with her, then she would have a right to complain, but as it is, he does not understand what she wants of him. Spivak states that her husband's letter is written in very nice terms and is very sensible. He states that all he can promise her is that the next time he is at the Sanitorium, he will have a long talk with him and if there is any more to be said about it will write to her, but so far does not really see what there is to say to her. Letter hopes that she will be able to support her little ones and that she will look upon this matter in a different light. Letter is unsigned but "Secretary" is typed at the bottom.
