Letter from C.D. Spivak to J. Klein, 1907 October 29
Typed letter from C.D. Spivak to Joseph Klein. Spivak informs Klein that his favor to take care of Mr. Schneiderman was handed to him by Schneiderman that day. He also tells Klein that Scheiderman filled out an application for admission, and as soon as there is vacancy he will be admitted. Spivak tells Klein that Schneiderman informed him that he has fifteen cents to his name. He explains to Klein that while the sanatorium has room for sixty patients, they are accommodating seventy-two. Spivak also says there is wait list of about seventy poor men and women in Denver who are waiting for admission. He tells Klein that there is no way to admit Schneiderman before six or eight weeks; therefore, he will have to pay for his board. Spivak warns that JCRS has no funds to pay for the board of applicants. Spivak instructs Klein to pay for Scheiderman’s boarding until he is admitted. Spivak also tells Klein that Schneiderman was in his office crying because he did not know what to do or where to go. Spivak took it upon himself to pay for one week of board which amounted to $6.50 until he hears from Klein. Spivak then goes into detail about the fact that other hospitals in Denver charge $15.00 to $40.00 per week and are crowded while JCRS is the only charitable institution of its kind. He insists that organizations that send patients to Denver must provide them with money. Spivak finishes the letter by hoping that Scheiderman will be paid by the Pennsylvania Lodge.
