Letter from C.D. Spivak to Dr. J.B. Fish, 1908 July 29

Identifier: B002.01.0100.0026.00038


Typed letter from C.D. Spivak in Denver, Colorado, to Dr. J.B. Fish in Edgewater, Colorado. Letter requests the admittance of Mr. Barnet Jacobs as a regular case to the Sanatorium of the Jewish Consumptives' Relief Society, notwithstanding the fact that he handed in his application July 20th. In view of the fact that he is suffering from high temperature, severe gastric disturbances, they throught it best to admit him sooner than if he had to wait his regular turn for admission. Spivak states that Jacobs' case is a rather peculiar one and wishes to bring Fish's attention to it it, because in making an examination of his chest, he found that the physical signs are almost nil and yet sputum, according to his statement, has been examined by the New York Board of Health and found to contain bacilli. Dr. Friedman has also examined his sputum and found bacilli, and upon examing the patient on June 19th, states the patient has arrested tuberculosis of the right apex, no fever. Letter requests his opinion of him after examination and observation for a few days. Letter is unsigned but "Secretary" is typed at the bottom.
