Request for help with Sanatorium costs, 1908

Contributed by Maine State Archives


Mrs. Charles (Lutie) Eaton of Kennebunkport wrote a plea to Dr. Estes Nichols, superintendent of the Maine State Sanatorium in Hebron, to ask him to operate on the nose of her son George, a tuberculosis patient at the hospital.

Mrs. Eaton noted that George, who was 16, had done well at the hospital, but that the family had no further money to pay for his care. She hoped for an operation at as small a cost as possible and to continue George's care at home.

The privately run hospital frequently received requests for reduced rates.
