Luck Chain Letter. Early "Luck by Mail" type. Found using
newspapers.com. "The luck of the cards ..." US, 1950
The luck of the cards has been
sent to you. It has gone around the world four times by A. F. officers. The
one who breaks the chain will have bad luck. Please copy this note and see
what happens four days after receiving it.
Send this note and four copies to those to whom you wish good luck. Insert
your name at the bottom of the list and remove the top names. Do not send
money and do not keep this copy. It must leave you twenty-four hours after
General Watson received thirteen hundred dollars and lost it after
breaking the chain. You are sure to have good luck four days after receiving
this letter. This is no joke. You will receive it in the mail.
