Letter from C.D. Spivak to N.B. Weiss, 1908 January 13

Identifier: B002.01.0102.0139.00012


Typed letter from C.D. Spivak to N.B. Weiss. Spivak begins the letter by saying that Frank Schneiderman, a member of his lodge, filled out an application at JCRS on October 29th, 1907. He tells Weiss that Schneiderman turned his pockets inside-out and showed Spivak that he only had fifteen cents and not a single friend in Denver. Spivak tells Weiss that he sent Schneiderman to Mr. Garson’s boardinghouse and he would pay for one week of his board at a rate of $5.50. He then informs Weiss that he admitted Schneiderman on November 4th, 1907 and he wrote a letter to Mr. Joseph Klein and told him the whole story. Spivak then tells Weiss that he knows his lodge was suspended for the non-payment of dues and joined another order. Spivak assures Weiss that he is acquainted with the purpose of JCRS and that it is supported by good people throughout the United States. He also tells Weiss that all of the money that comes into JCRS supports the patients and sanatorium which is why they cannot afford to pay for Schneiderman’s boarding bill. He asks Weiss to get the money from his lodge to pay for the bill so that Mr. Garson does not suffer the loss of money. Spivak hopes to hear from Weiss soon and signs the letter.
