Identifier: B002.01.0101.0103.00022


Typed letter from C.D. Spivak in Denver, Colorado, to Mr. M. Bruh in Brooklyn, New York, stating that Mr. Max Lander has come to the JCRS with a letter in hand from Mr. Bruh. Lander claims to have come to Denver with only $.65 in his possession. Spivak cannot believe that Lander was sent to Denver with no money where hundreds of sick people come everday. Spivak is appauled and disgraced that his city did not collect some fares for him and to have put this new responsibility on Denver to help this poor man. Spivak states that he has sent Max Lander to a boarding house and that his pay will be $5.50 per week. It is Bruh moral duty to make sure that Lander, a resident of Brooklyn, New York, to pay for his room and board until he can be admitted into the Sanatorium. Spivak states that Lander will be dmitted into the Sanatorium as soon as there is a vacancy. Added at the end, Spivak states that in Bruh's file as of July 22, 1907, sent the JCRS a subscription in which is obligated to help support the JCRS by sending the sum of $1.00 per year. Spivak is wondering if Bruh sent the money for 1907, 1908, and 1909, the JCRS has nothing on file. Letter is unsigned but "Secretary" is typed at the bottom.
