Letter from Barnet Sedler to C.D. Spivak, 1908 August 7

Identifier: B002.01.0100.0025.00003


Typed two-page letter on Sedler's Clothing House letterhead from Barnet Sedler in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, to C.D. Spivak in Denver, Colorado. Sedler states that he has Spivak's reply of August 4th to hand and contents read. He thanks him very much for his kindness in replying promptly to his letter in question of Louis Goldstein, which explains every detail satisfactory. Sedler asks Spivak to pardon him if he finds his letter, which he was compelled to write him again on Aug. 5th regarding Louis Goldstein, and which he might have expressed himself with too sensitive feelings, and which he might feel a little injured. He asks Spivak though, to pardon him if he takes it on the wrong side, which his expression did not mean to complain, but rather to ask him to explain as he then believed that before receiving his letter of August 4th, that in case Louis Goldstein is not in his Sanatarium, that it is not his blame whatever and by receiving this letter fully explaining the situation gives him a clear idea of the case. Although, he asks him kindly again, that if Louis Goldstein, his nephew, calls on his Sanitarium again for admittance, to please give him another chance, as he has all the experience with young people. With so many of them, they do not appreciate the kindness and the efforts of a society like his, especially the individual efforts, which he understands is given by him [Spivak]. Sedler only hopes that Spivak will be repaid some day, for all the good things that he does for humanity. About Mr. Prensky, who is a cousin of his, he never knew that he was an inmate of the J.C.R.S., but he did not know more about him, except what a brother of this party asks him to interest himself for him and write to Spivak about him. He states that he will do all that he can to help the J.C.R.S., and will not neglect any chance whatever to do so. Sedler thanks him very much again and asks that he please reply to his letter as soon as possible. Letter is signed Barnet Sedler.
