Letter from A. Muller to S. Rosenbloom, 1910 May 25
Typed letter from A. Muller to S. Rosenbloom. Muller tells Rosenbloom that he has received many letters from JCRS friends in Pittsburg, including Mr. Oppenheimer and Mr. Hamburger, regarding Mr. Blauweis’ case. Muller also informs Rosenbloom that he is sending a separate pamphlet about the “’whys and wherefores’ it is necessary to make application to the hospital before leaving their home town” and how the Medical and Admission Board makes their decisions. Muller continues to say that failure to follow the pamphlet often leads to grave injustice for the sick patient who may be in an incurable stage, and hastens their death. Muller then tells Rosenbloom that he has taken up the matter with the president of JCRS, Mr. Grabfelder. Grabfelder is the only man that can make decisions above the rules of admitting patients. Muller informs Rosenbloom that Blauweis has not arrived in Denver yet, but his wait for admission could be eight to ten weeks and Blauweis will need to be provided with sufficient funds for boarding. He tells Rosenbloom that the minimum cost would be $6.00 a week for boarding, exclusive of laundry and other amenities. Although once Blauweis is admitted, medical care and attention will be free of charge. Muller finishes the letter by stating that applicants are admitted on a rotating basis and it would be an injustice to admit anybody out of their turn. The letter is signed, “Cordially yours, (Signed) Alfred Muller.” The letter has a post script at the bottom that states, “P.S. Mr. Muller had to leave the office before this letter was written. (Signed by the stenographer)(Dictated but not read by Mr. Muller).”
