Luck chain letter (postcard). Ancient prayer. "Be of good cheer at all times." US, 1917.

Be of good cheer at all times. An an-
cient prayer. Oh, Lord ever pray Thee
to bless us & keep us from all evil & bring
us to dwell with thee at last. |
  This prayer
was sent to me. Copy it & send it with-
in 9 days to nine friends & on the 10th
day you will receive great joy. A
great misfortune is awaiting
you if you do not. Do not
send any name & date
on day you receive this card.
