Typed 2 page letter from C.D. Spivak addressed to Mr [sic] H. B. Ferguson, Sec'y., Pittsburg House of Shelter, 1115 Bluff Str., Pittsburg, Pa. In the letter, Spivak discusses how he regrettably left and forgot about two unread letters from Mrs. Ferguson in his overcoat pocket. Spivak also discusses how "admitting Mr. bernstein to the sanatorium of the J.C.R.S. on the day of his arrival in Denver, is absolutely out of the question." Spivak states that "all applicants, of whom at the present writing we have over 60 are jealously watching every patient that leaves the Sanatorium and every applicant that enters the sanatorium." Spivak insists that all patients, save for emergency cases, "must go in rotation." Spivak states that he will appeal to the Admission and Dismission committee if Mr. Bernstein does come to Denver but that Mr. Bernstein will have to stay in Denver prior to admission for a breef time. Spivak acknolodges that this system is not without fault, but insists that at "under present condition of affairs this arrangement is with the faults the best." Letter is unsigned but "Secretary" is typed on the bottom.
