Luck chain letter. Good Luck with Linkage, no Affirmation. Started by a British army officer.  US, 1926.
Dear Friend:
This good luck letter was sent to me by a friend and I am sending it to you and others. I am asking you not to break this chain but to copy the complete letter and send it to nine of your friends whom you wish good luck. This letter was started by a British army officer and should go around the world three times.  
Do not break this chain as those who do will have bad luck. Write nine letters and mail within 24 hours and on the ninth day good luck will come to you through life.

Published: The San Bernardino County Sun (San Bernardino, California), 1 April 1926, p. 11. Title: "'Good Luck' Cycl (sic) Again Coming to Residents Though Barred from Mails."  "Several complaints have been received at the Postoffice regarding the good luck chain letters received by residents here and in many cases signed by persons who apparently wish to keep their identity a secret by signing doubtful initials... More than a dozen complaints have been received this week." Entered by DWV, Feb. 26, 2014.
