Overview

Copy of letter on The Jewish Consumptives' Relief Society letterhead from C.D. Spivak in Denver, Colorado, to Mr. Henry Cohen in Denver, Colorado. Letter states that enclosed are two letters received from Mr. Abraham Kaiser, who is now in the County Jail serving a sentence of 90s days for vagrancy. Mr. Kaiser is an intelligent fellow, a very nice fellow, and during his stay at the Sanatorium for the first three months, he behaved himself as a perfect gentleman, for he never took a drink all the time while he remained a patient at the Sanatorium. In fact, it was because he had been found drunk so many times that it was thought best to admit him to the Sanatorium, which he was, and he kept true to his promise all the time that he remained there. Letter states agreement with him that it is too severe a punishment to remain in the County Jail for 90 days for no other sin than vagrancy, especially so when according to his letter, he ought not to have been punished, as he had a house to live in and some money in his pocket according to his statement, of course. Letter asks what Cohen can do for him, as it would be well to give him a chance. Letter is signed C.D. Spivak. There is a P.S. which requests that when Cohen is through with the enclosed correspondence, if he could kindly return it to the office.
