Letter from C.D. Spivak to E.C. Robitshek, 1910 May 9

Identifier: B002.01.0102.0131.00006


Typed letter from C.D. Spivak to E.C. Robitshek. Spivak begins the letter by telling Robitshek that Mr. Hyman Bozner filled out an application on April 29th. He also brought along a letter of introduction from Robitshek that stated that Bozner does not have a penny to his name and was told by Robitshek that Bozner would be admitted to the sanatorium upon his arrival. Spivak tells Robitshek that this information is rather strange because he should know as a doctor that he should check with the hospital for available rooms before he sends a patient miles away. He also tells Robitshek that all of the hospitals in the United States would not hold one-tenth of all consumptives in the country which is why all institutions have a long wait list for patients to be admitted. Spivak asks Robitshek what should be done with Mr. Bozner because he has no means to pay for his board and room during the time he will be waiting for admission to JCRS. He tells Robitshek that there are over ninety applicants in Denver who have been waiting for weeks for admission. He instructs Bozner to find funds from his city to help Bozner because he is the only person that sent a letter of interest to help him. Spivak hopes that Robitshek will understand the spirit in which the letter was written and take up the matter at once. The letter is signed “Secretary” at the bottom.
