Parody chain letter.  Husband exchange.  Early text.  "... you will receive 15,188 men."  US, 1949.
Dear Pal;
  This chain was started in the hope of bringing happiness to all tired housewives. Unlike most chains, this one does not require money. Simply send a copy of this letter to five female friends. Then bundle up your husband and send him to the person whose name heads the list. When your name gets to the top you will receive 15,188 men, and some ought to be dandies.
  Have faith. Don't break the chain. One woman broke it and got her husband back.

Published: The Daily Independent (Murphysboro, Illinois), March 23, 1949, p. 2.
