Identifier: B002.01.0100.0022.00010


Handwritten two-page letter in ink on Rabbi Solomon Foster letterhead from Solomon Foster in Newark, New Jersey, to Dr. C.D. Spivak in Denver, Colorado. Rabbi Foster introduces Gabriel Cohen of Newark, N.J. who has been in the Denver Hospital for one year and according to their rules, cannot remain in there any longer. As the young man from [repeats] has reached him, is not able to do any work and is intent to remain in Denver, Foster would request Dr. Spivak to let him enter the hospital of the Jewish Consumptives' Relief Society. No doubt he is equipped for handling such cases. Foster states that as he has taken an interest with [the] young man personally, as well as he sympathizes with an unfortunate, he hopes he is not asking for too much as a member of the Relief Society, to extend to him his care and attention. Letter states hearty thanks for Dr. Spivak's interest and is signed "Solomon Foster."
