Abstract

Typed letter from C.D. Spivak to Louis Gonda. Spivak first clarifies that the name “Louis Gonda” was given to JCRS when he filed the application. This is in response to a previous letter that mentions the death of an Alex Gonda, written by his brother Louis Gonda. Spivak then goes into detail about the circumstances of Gonda's deaths by saying that he was mostly in bed during his stay, although his condition did not seem that bad until about two weeks before his death. Spivak mentions that their examining physician stated that Gonda was suffering from the second stage of tuberculosis before he died. He tells L. Gonda that his brother has been buried at Golden Hill Cemetery. He also mentions that JCRS informed his wife of the death and that he was instructed by the family to bury the body in Denver. He states the burial expenses came out to $31.50 which he trusts will be paid by relatives of the family. He signs the letter "Secretary" at the bottom.
