Overview

Typed letter from C.D. Spivak in Denver, Colorado, to Mr. H. Hurwitz in Sioux City, Iowa, stating that they have a patient in the Sanantorium by the name of Morris Solomon, who was admitted on Aug. 12th, 1908. The poor fellow came to them without any letters of introduction. The President of the Charitable Society, Mr. Muschkin, furnished him with a railroad ticket, but never sent them a word that Mr. Solomon was coming. He arrived absolutely penniless and they had to admit him on account of his poverty before many others who had been waiting a long time before him. Now, Mr. Solomon is not doing very well in the Sanatorium. The Superintendent, Dr. J.B. Fish, thinks that the altitude is too high for him and that it would be best for him to go to a lower altitude. They consider it to be the duty of the Charity Organization in Hurwitz's city to send him sufficient means for a ticket. Letter requests if he be kind enough to talk over this matter to Mr. Muschkin, knowing that he has some influence with the gentleman. Letter is unsigned but "Secretary" is typed at the bottom.
