Letter from A. Polinsky to P. Hillkowitz, 1912 February 27
Handwritten letter from Abraham Polinsky to P. Hillkowitz. Polinsky begins the letter by thanking Hillkowitz for the trouble he had taken to respond to his letters. He also acknowledges that JCRS has been very kind to refer his case to a counselor. Polinsky asks Hillkowitz to not blame him for his actions because it had already been five years since the case has been in Cohen’s hands and he is a poor man that cannot send any more money for litigation expenses. Polinsky also tells Hillkowitz that he cannot send the paper that he asked for because the American Counsel said it would cost “£7.7.” which was impossible for Polinsky to pay for. He asks Hillkowitz to take an interest in his case and speak to Mr. Cohen so that he can oblige to do the best work he can on his case, and without further demands on paper. Polinsky then tells Hillkowitz that he will offer Cohen ten percent of his claim when he receives it. He hopes that it will cover the expense owed to Cohen. At the end of the letter Polinsky admits again that he is a poor man speaking from a bitter heart, but he would like to fulfill all of their demands if it were in his power to do so. The letter is signed, “Abraham Polinsky” at the bottom.
