Identifier: B002.01.0103.0023.00008


Typed letter from C.D. Spivak in Denver, Colorado to Mr. Ph. Seman [Philip L. Seman] in Saint Louis, Missouri in "re Isidore Smith" [archivist infers this is Isaac Smith] informs that JCRS will be glad to admit Mr. Smith to the Sanatorium as soon as a vacancy occurs but at the present time is is impossible to give a definite date when a vacancy will happen. Informs that now, JCRS simply writes to correspondents that they will have to provide the patient with sufficient funds for board and lodging. Spivak informs that while he is happy to hear that Seman does not hear from the patients he sends to Denver after they stay at the Sanatorium, not all cases end so happily. Informs that the conference at the Jefferson Hotel, many who leave the Sanatorium are unable to gain employment. Spivak asks if it should be the organizations that send patients to JCRS be responsible for those patients not only before admission but also after their care. Spivak expresses his gratitude to Seman for the courtesies Seman showed to Spivak during his stay in St. Louis. Letter is unsigned but "Secretary" is typed at the bottom.
