Once Berkowitz is in Denver, he can start the process of filing application. Letter is signed in ink "CD Spivak". On the back side of the letter, handwritten in purple penciell reads "I have friends in Denver that I can stay with until such times as I can get into the Hospital". Signed in ink "I. Berkowtiz."
