This collection contains scanned facsimiles of manuscripts held in the collection of the Historical Medical Library of the College of Physicians of Philadelphia, reproduced here with the Library's permission. Details regarding the original collection are available at the Historical Medical Library's website.

The majority of these letters deal with the staffing and management of Mount Sinai's Out-Door Department, the hospital dispensary, which Jacobi oversaw as Chairman of the Supervising Committee. The collection includes a copy of the Department's rules and regulations from the early 1880s. The collection also contains two letters regarding Jacobi's resignation as Attending Physician and his advancement to the newly created position of Consulting Physician.
