Identifier: B002.01.0101.0072.00003


Typed letter from C.D. Spivak in Denver, Colorado to Samuel Schwartzberg, Grand Secretary of the Progressive Order of the West in Saint Louis, Missouri informs Schwartzberg of the financial situation of the Jewish Consumptives' Relief Society and the status of patients. Informs that JCRS has started the year with a deficit of $6,000 and income has not been coming in. Also informs that the sanatorium is housing 76 patients at the moment and no patients can be discharged so no new patients can be admitted. Spivak informs the board of trustees will increase the capacity of the sanatorium to 90 patients in the near future. Finally, Spivak advises Schwartzberg to send Siegman to Denver as soon as possible and Spivak will do all he can to admit Siegman while considering the other patients already waiting. Letter is unsigned but "Secretary" is typed at the bottom.
