Luck chain letter.  "An Ancient Prayer"  "Copy and see what happens."  "Sign no name only date received."  US, 1914.

An Ancient Prayer.
Our Lord Jesus, I pray Thee bless us and keep us from all evil and bring us to dwell with Thee.  Amen.
This prayer was sent to me and is sent all over the world. Copy and see what happens. It is said in Jesus' time that all who copied the prayer would be delivered from all evil, but those who passed it by would meet with some misfortune. Copy and send to nine friends within nine days. And on the tenth day you will meet with some great joy. Sign no name, only date received. Don't break chain.

The Rev. Robert Gordon Throws Copies into Waiste Basket.
"The endless chain prayer, which has been so industriously circulated during the last few years, is still being passed along with vigor. Several members of the First Baptist church have reported to the Rev. Robert Gordon the receipt of copies of this prayer and one person received three within a few weeks. ¶ The following is a copy of a letter received by Mr. Gordon a few days ago."  [text]  Entered by DWV, Sept. 18, 2014.
