Luck chain letter. Ancient prayer postcard. ". . . see what happens." US, 1912.

An ancient prayer

Oh Jesus I implore thee to bless
me and all mankind. Keep us
from sin and take us to dwell with
Thee. Amen
This was sent to me and is to be sent
all over the world. Copy and see what
happens. It was said in Jesus
time all those who wrote it
would be delivered from all
Calamity and those who passed
it by could meet with misfortune.
Those who copy it within nine
days of receiving and send to nine
friends will on the ninth day
receive some great Joy.

Do not break the chain.
Sign no name only date
of receiving. May-26-1912
