Dear Friend,

This letter started in Peoria in the hope of bringing relief and happiness
to tired husbands.

Unlike most chain letters, this one will not cost you any money.  Simply send
a copy of this letter to five of your friends who are equally tired.

Place your name at the foot of this list, then bundle up your wife and
ship her to the man whose name appears at the top of this list.

Then when your name comes to the top, you may receive as many as 8,750
 women, and some of them will be dandies.

 Have faith and DON'T break the chain--- one man did and got is own wife

                                       Yours truly,
                                        Jimmy Roosevelt
                                        Perfirio Rubiresa
                                        Aly Khan
                                        Tommy Mansville
                                        Adolph Sprekles
                                        King Farouk
                                        Mickey Rooney
                                       Errol Flynn
                                        Artie Shaw

P.S.  At this date of writing a friend of mine has received 364 women
 They buried him yesterday, but it took 3 undertakers 36 hours to get
 the smile off his face.
