This collection contains 3 letters and 8 printed advertisements related to the operation of the Clifton Springs Sanitarium in and around the year 1892. In 2 manuscript letters to Mrs. M. E. Donaldson of Charlestown, Ohio, superintendent Dr. Henry Foster, responded to queries about the sanitarium's services, prices, and room availability. "The Sanitarium" sent a similar printed letter to Mrs. S. E. Greenleaf, originally accompanied by advertising circulars. A pair of printed circulars provide room prices, discuss the composition of the sanitarium's healing waters, and mention the institution's commitment to prayer and religious devotion. Each has an illustration of the sanitarium's main building. Other items are 2 dinner menus, a newspaper article about "A Mid-summer Week at Clifton Springs," 2 blank bath tickets with prices for various water-based therapies, and a pamphlet about the history of the sanitarium, with endorsements from former patients.
