Letter from C.D. Spivak to Simon Shapiro, 1909 September 24

Identifier: B002.01.0101.0024.00013


Typed letter from C.D. Spivak in Denver, Colorado to Simon Shapiro in Saint Louis, Missouri. Spivak writes that he would like to say a few words in reference to Harry Shapiro, Simon's son. Informs that Harry Shapiro had been in the JCRS Sanatorium before and has always been a welcome guest whether he was visiting the members of the Board of Trustees, working at JCRS, or when he lived in Denver. Spivak informs that everyone at JCRS had a warm spot in their hearts for him. He assures Simon that they had done everything to make Harry comfortable during his last days. Spivak informs that Harry Shapiro left a watch, $2.00 in cash, and a deposit certificate for $300 made out payable to "self or Ezy Shapiro" who is Harry's brother. Informs that JCRS doesn't have Ezy Shapiro's address and therefor cannot write to him to notify. Spivak informs that Harry Shapiro left a will that bequeaths $50 to the Sanatorium, to be paid from the money in his bank and requests that Simon communicate with Ezy Shapiro so that JCRS may be authorized to draw $50 on the account. Spivak also informs that Mr. S.S. Garson with whom Harry Shapiro had boarded prior to entering the Sanatorium has written to JCRS that he has in his possession one wooden wash stand, two pillows, and three blankets. Spivak requests directions as to what to do with these possessions and with the cash left at the JCRS. Letter is unsigned but "Secretary" is typed at the bottom.
