Identifier: B002.01.0102.0036.00026


Excerpt of a letter from H. Masliansky to C.D. Spivak. Masliansky states in the letter that there are reports concerning JCRS. One being a young resident from Denver by the name Goodstein shared some gruesome facts about the sanatorium to Masliansky and other people. Masliansky also complains about ex-patient Abe Billen and says that he has been visiting all of the societies and lodges with heartrending stories. Masliansky makes a point that the woman’s stories from Denver and Billen’s stories match and he is afraid these stories will destroy his work. Masliansky shares one example of a story being shared and states that Billen said his friend had a hemorrhage one morning and tried to wake up the doctor to get him some help. The Doctor slammed the door on his face and went back to his tent disheartened. Later his friend died before he received any assistance. Masliansky does not know if the report is true, but he still worries that it will ruin his work.
