From: Pampa Daily News (Pampa,
Texas), 1 Nov. 1939. The line "Good luck to you and trust in God. He who
suffered our needs" was given by the author of the newspaper story at the
end of the article, citing is as "one line that we like." Where it appeared
in the chain letter was not stated. We have placed it based on cognate lines
in other Fl-pr letters (1939-07 and 1940-05). Author said he was just giving the names, on the list, of people
who lived in Pampa. Entered by DWV, Dec. 9, 2013.
